We're a parent led, volunteer organization. For 35+ years all the incidental bills were generously paid out of our pockets, or by informal donations. However, in December of 2013, MIS became a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization. EIN:80-0877543
We accept donations by credit card, PayPal, or check. If you would like to make a donation in honor of your baby, their name(s) can be included on our Remembrance page. You simply provide the baby's name/names at time of donation, in the PayPal web form or on the memo line of the check. If you can't fit the name, need to correct it, or didn't get prompted to enter it, just use our firstname.lastname@example.org email to send a note.
We're very small, and our support can only be effective if parents find out about us. The ability of a family to find our support group is crucial to our mission of supporting bereaved parents. Donations are used to that end, in order to pay for printed materials we distribute to parents who attend our meetings, as well as to various hospitals and doctors. We also use the funds to maintain our website, lending library, and professional memberships to the National Share, and PLIDA Organizations. Additionally, we send representatives to relevant training opportunities. All of our expenditures are discussed and agreed upon by our board members, who have all experienced the loss of their babies.
