Donate - WE NEED YOU!

We need you. We need you to help us provide our services to children and families in our community.

As you may know, grief is a universal experience. During times of sorrow however, children and teens can often feel overlooked and as a result can feel especially isolated. A significant amount of research has been conducted which has demonstrated that children who have experienced a parental loss are significantly more likely to develop depression, suffer from anxiety, get divorced and have lower educational attainment. (McLeod, 1991).

With past financial and in-kind support, SandCastles has helped change young lives and families. For a five year period from 2012 to 2016, SandCastles served 1,995 children, and 2,463 adults.  Can you imagine if SandCastles did not exist?

SandCastles is a 501(c)(3) organization, so your financial support is tax deductible.

There are multiple ways to donate to SandCastles:
