Wings for Widows is a Minnesota 501(c)3 public charity that provides pro bono financial planning for new widows and widowers to help them achieve financial wellness after the loss of a loved one.  We are the first and only organization of our kind in the United States and do not charge for our services. 

What can you do to help us help the underserved?  Please consider a gift to Wings for Widows so we can provide emergency financial planning to widows and widowers struggling with the financial trauma of loss.  Once a widow or widower has financial clarity, they can focus on the other aspects of widowhood, like addressing their grief, going back to work, moving, or raising children as a single-parent.  With nearly 3,000 women becoming widows every day in the U.S., we need your support! 

Your gift may be tax deductible; please consult your tax representative for more information.
