Together, We Build a Compassionate Community.


Your support makes a difference in the lives of grieving children, families, and individuals.


Michael’s Place has been 100% community funded since its inception and our programs are provided to the individuals and families we serve without the barrier of cost. We are grateful for your support of our mission.

It is crucial that grief support services be freely available to anyone regardless of economic status, as death does not discriminate. Many families have already been financially burdened by the death of a loved on because of medical bills, funeral costs, and loss of income.  In order to continue on our mission, Michael’s Place relies heavily on financial contributors to maintain operations.

There are many ways to provide financial support to Michael’s Place – some ways provide immediate funding by donating and others defer your contribution until a later date of your choosing. Donations may be made in memory or in honor of a loved one. Please keep in mind that you will receive a receipt for your tax deductible support, as Michael’s Place is a 501(c) 3 organization. 


Stock Transfer
Michael’s Place is able to accept contributions in the form of stock transfers.


IRA Distributions
Individuals may direct a portion of their IRA distributions to Michael’s Place in the form of a contribution. Questions on IRA contributions can be directed to Michael’s Place, or donors may work with their own financial advisors for assistance.


Estate Planning
Many donors opt to allocate a portion of their estate to Michael’s Place at the time of their death. This is a thoughtful and appreciated way to leave a legacy of hope and generosity. Michael’s Place can assist interested donors with the proper information needed to designate Michael’s Place in estate planning documents.
