Thank you for considering a donation to our Silent Auction.
Wings for Widows provides financial coaching and education to help new widows and widowers manage the short-term financial burden of widowhood. We recognize the impact financial stress can have with grieving and healing after losing a spouse. Our clients receive one-on-one coaching from a licensed financial advisor to help and empower them to regain financial stability and wellness. We empower widows to manage their grief and lean into life by taking control of their future. We are the first and only organization of our kind in the United States and do not charge for our services.
Our virtual annual benefit is scheduled to stream live on Friday, October 15, beginning at 7 PM CST. Last year’s event drew more than 600 viewers and we expect an even larger attendance this year. The objective of our annual benefit is to raise awareness of the underserved widow community while raising funds to serve more widows every year.
What impact does our fundraising have? Take Jo, for example. We advocated for her and eventually saved her over $200,000 in medical bills. Or Karen. We worked with her to keep her and her disabled grandson in their home. We’ve coached and educated hundreds of widows since our inception in 2017. And it’s only been possible through the donations and gifts from generous donors like you.
Please consider helping us with a product donation or service from your business. Your donation can be something as simple as a gift certificate to a night on the town or a weekend at a favorite resort. All donations are greatly appreciated. All donors will be recognized on our event landing page, in all campaign media leading up to the event, and during the event.
