Supporting Kidds

The Center for Grieving Children and Their Families



To realize our vision and mission, Supporting Kidds must raise our own funds.  We rely on private donations from individuals and corporations, special fundraising events, private foundation grants and donations through individual United Way allocations (designation #0728) to serve grieving children and families.

Donation checks are always gladly accepted, payable to Supporting Kidds, 1213 Old Lancaster Pike, Hockessin, DE 19707. 

You can also make an online donation. Just click the Donate Now button below. All you need is a credit card.

Friends of Kidds Giving Society
In 2002, Supporting Kidds established the Friends of Kidds Giving Society to ensure the long-term financial stability of our programs and services.  We are truly thankful to the hundreds of individuals who have made donations and pledges toward our operating budget for the next several years.  By pledging a yearly donation, you will enable children to cope with the pain in their lives and prevent the consequences of unresolved grief.  Through contributions to Supporting Kidds, you can impact the care and support of children in your community - children you may know, coach, teach, or parent.  Join us in creating a pathway to healing.  Here are some examples of how contributions are used:

$35 Provides a Survival Kit to one grieving family
$50 Purchases supplies for one evening of support groups
$250 Sponsors a child throughout a six-week program session
$500 Supplies materials to train 20 new volunteer facilitators
$1,000 Enables a family to receive services throughout the year


Gifts can be made in memory or honor of a loved one.  Many families make donations to mark special occasions in the lives of their families.  Contact our office for more information on unique ways to make a tribute to your family and friends.  Some creative wish list items for donation are noted below:

  • Underwrite our electric, fuel oil, or trash service for a year
  • Underwrite a month (or more) of our mortgage payments
  • Sponsor the 6 week Spring or Fall support group
  • Sponsor the 4 week facilitator training
  • Sponsor the costs of a therapist for a year
  • Underwrite professional association memberships for Dr. Traynor
  • Underwrite attendance at the National Association of Grieving Children annual symposium for members of our clinical staff
