What Do We Believe?

We believe that when someone we care for passes away, the responsibility of providing a special memorial for them should be shared amongst our family and friends - not just a select few. It is an opportunity for us all to show our appreciation for the impact someone has had on our lives, no matter how big or how small.

What Is Our Mission?

Our mission is to encourage and capture the power of connecting our community of family and friends around the death of a loved one. We believe that many small actions, when collected in one place, can have a big impact.

How Did We Act On Our Mission?

Our mission inspired us to create Graceful Goodbye so that we can provide families with a platform that not only allows them to raise money for funeral expenses, but that also brings them together to celebrate and memorialize life.

A Note From Us To You

We would like to say thank you for visiting us here at Graceful Goodbye. We are honored to be a part of helping you, your family and your friends come together to share in the process of saying goodbye to someone that was a part of your life in some unique and special way.

We started Graceful Goodbye because we believe that when someone we care about passes away, we have the power to make it a loving celebration that brings family and friends together. Losing someone close to us is hard. We can feel helpless and lost. From our own personal experiences, we have found that our family and friends want to help during this time, but often don't know the best way to do it.

Having had seen and experienced this situation, we felt we were missing a lot of opportunities to do something that is genuinely positive and that comes from a loving and supportive place. We wanted to create a platform that would make giving and helping easier, no matter how close or far away. Graceful Goodbye is a platform where friends and family connect in one place to celebrate life and support each other during a difficult time.

The power of connecting our community of family and friends, is that with many small actions, we have a large impact. We can transform the emotional loss of a loved one and the heavy financial burden into a shining example of the good we can do, simply by supporting one another. We believe the act of giving has the ability to create happiness and reinforce relationships.

The memorial fundraisers on Graceful Goodbye are powerful examples in how celebrating life can bring us all closer together. It is not about asking for help. It is about us actively showing that we care for one another and those that have passed away. Let's create something positive from loss and sadness.

If there is anything that you need help with, we're here.
