Your support is transformational to expand our reach to more at-risk children. We recognize all donors who support Empower with $1,000 or more in unrestricted fiscal gifts within a calendar year.

Since launching our donation program, we have grown our enrollment by over 100% year over year and today we serve 600+ children around the world in virtual and in-person programming.


It is estimated that over 10 million young people in the USA experience the death of a parent each year. For most children, parents are the most influential figure in their lives, and the loss of a parental compass can leave children feeling isolated and “different” from their peers.

Empower is building a unique, uplifting community defined by shared experience and connection. Our mentorship program matches children and young adults with positive role models who have also experienced parent loss, providing year-round support and teaching their mentees that loss is survivable.

Empower events offer peer support and a caring community, reminding the children they are not alone in their grief.
