Each month TCF sends out on average 1,000 newly bereaved packets.

1,000 is a staggering number and that is the number of people who have found us and know that we exist. Imagine what that number would be if everyone in the United States grieving the loss of a child, grandchild or sibling knew there was support available for them.

In Caring and Sharing Comes Healing

The Compassionate Friends exists to provide friendship, understanding, and hope to those going through the natural grieving process.

Your Donation can be doubled

Dale’s Mom, Debbie Dullabaun, current president of The Compassionate Friends Board of Directors shares in this video an exciting matching opportunity. This generous donor match is only valid for this end-of-year campaign which means your donation today gets doubled, enabling twice as many families to be helped.

The vision statement of The Compassionate Friends is that everyone who needs us will find us and everyone who finds us will be helped. Your donation would go towards community outreach and much needed training and resources for our chapter leaders, regional coordinators and Facebook moderators that support each grieving family member.


TCF is a beacon, a lighthouse, a warm and glowing community of sharing that has helped me navigate a tragedy I can never understand. I am ever-grateful for my compassionate friends.

– John, bereaved parent
