Providing financial and emotional assistance to grieving families in need is one of the Foundation’s primary directives. As a matter of fact, we are the only national charity to offer bereavement support and burial financial assistance. To date, more than 200 families in more than 30 states have received aid from the Luca John Foundation to cover funeral costs.
The death of a child is a devastating reality that no parent should ever have to face alone. We know first-hand the herculean task of grieving a loss while struggling to cover expenses that no family plans for. In this time of great need, a small measure of relief can be taken from the knowledge that you will not have to compromise how you honor your child, due to financial constraints.
Applications for assistance are accepted on a rolling basis. We strive to make first contact within 24 hours of receiving your request and reviewing your case. Unfortunately, not every request can be approved, as we prioritize the families who are most in need of assistance.
