The ROOTS Program


Our goal is to raise $10,000 in 10 Months.
We can do it with your help!

Join us in planting the seeds for the ROOTS Program – because together, we can create a world where no family navigates the loss of a child alone.


The Vision Behind the ROOTS Program
  
At the heart of the Rowan Tree Foundation lies a simple yet powerful truth: Connection and support are vital in the journey of healing after child loss. This understanding is the cornerstone of our envisioned ROOTS Program, a new outreach and support initiative that we aim to bring to life through our current fundraising campaign.

What is the ROOTS Program?
  
ROOTS stands for RTF Ongoing Outreach + Support. Our ROOTS Program is an umbrella under which we plan to develop online and in-person programs that will offer a lifeline to families grappling with the profound grief of losing a child. While we've seen the impact of our current support structures, we know there's a need for more – more outreach, more resources, more services, and more ways to connect with families who share this unique and painful journey.

Key Features of the Program:
  
We envision the ROOTS Program being a space within which we can offer: Online Grief Support Workshops, Peer Support Groups, In-Person Workshops, Retreats, Live and Pre-Recorded Support and Learning, a Resource Library, and that's just the beginning!

The Potential Impact:
  
The ROOTS Program is more than just a collection of services; it's a movement through which we envision taking a larger role in the child loss community, supporting families and creating containers of safety, empathy, and support for families in a mission-driven, intentional way to help more families learn to live with their grief, and not in their grief.

By connecting with families, facilitating support, and providing resources, we aim to create a community that not only survives grief but grows stronger and more resilient through it.

Your Role in Bringing ROOTS to Life:
  
As we stand at the threshold of making the ROOTS Program a reality, your support is crucial. This fundraising campaign aims to gather the necessary funds to launch and sustain the program, ensuring that every family that needs this kind of support can access it. Your contribution, big or small, is not just a donation; it's a beacon of hope for countless families coping after the death of their child.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 in 10 Months.

 You can support the ROOTS Program by:

  • spreading the word!
  • giving a one-time donation,
  • setting up a recurring, monthly donation,
  • checking to see if your company has a matching-gift program.
