ATLANTA NONPROFIT RAISES $2.75M TO SUPPORT GRIEVERS IN GEORGIA
Kate’s Club closes capacity building campaign to support children, families and young adults
Atlanta, Ga. – December 31, 2023 – During its 20th anniversary year, Kate’s Club is honored to close the $2.75 million It’s Okay to Grieve capacity building campaign. Campaign funds will support both expansion of its flagship programs for kids and teens, and a growing number of services for new demographics and in new geographies.
In Georgia, there are 1 in 11 children grieving the death of a parent, sibling or caregiver, and the number doubles to 1 in 5 young adults grieving the death of someone important to them. Kate’s Club’s community and peer-based programs unite Georgia’s grievers under one vision: a world in which it’s okay to grieve.
“The success of the It’s Okay to Grieve campaign is a testament to this need and the strength of our community,” said Lisa Aman, Executive Director. “I continue to be inspired by both the growing need for grief support and the community of children, families, young adults, volunteers and donors I have had the privilege of getting to know through Kate’s Club.”
As part of the campaign, Kate’s Club opened a new suite in its Atlanta Clubhouse to serve an ever-growing number of kids, teens and families. The organization also expanded services in the Albany, Athens, Brunswick and Newnan areas.
Additionally, Kate’s Club extended its unique services to young adults ages 18 to 30, and launched an online community for grievers, as well as volunteers and professionals who support them. For more information on programs funded, visit katesclub.org/itsokaytogrieve.
“I am so grateful for the efforts of our campaign committee, board and staff, as well as the generosity of our donors,” said Rob Spencer, campaign Co-Chair. “Kate's Club now has the ability to exponentially expand its services to grieving children, their caregivers and young adults. I have never been so excited for the future of Kate's Club.”
