For parents, family members and friends, the death of a baby is heartbreaking. Often times parents are asked where donations can be sent. First Candle is proud of its ongoing record of keeping administrative costs below the nonprofit standard of 25 percent. We guarantee that more than 75 percent of every dollar donated will go to support our important programs and services. We also offer families the opportunity to designate their donation to a specific program or service. All memorial donations will be acknowledged. If you are an extended family member or friend, First Candle will be happy to let the parents know that you have made a memorial donation in their baby’s name. Please be sure to include the name and address to which an acknowledgment should be sent. A special poem keepsake will also be included.
