Help PLIDA Spring Forward Appeal

Dear PLIDA Members and Friends, 

The loss of a pregnancy or death of a baby affects 1 in 4 women in the US during their lifetime and is recognized as a global public health concern. PLIDA promotes the highest quality of consistent evidence-based bereavement care for all families who suffer the death of a baby during pregnancy or in the first few months of life. 

A baby’s death may have affected you, a family member or dear family friend. Or perhaps families and babies you have served in your work have touched your heart and changed your life’s path in ways you never imagined. Through such personal experience, you likely know the anguish, grief, and brokenness that often accompany the death of a beloved and much-wanted baby. And, you likely know that receiving quality relationship-based care can be the difference between bereaved parents feeling supported or feeling helpless and abandoned. 

Our dream is to raise $20,000. In hopes of reaching this goal, we are launching our Help PLIDA Spring Forward Appeal. To support the clinicians and parent advocates who care for bereaved families would you consider a gift to PLIDA?

Hear from Dr. Rana Limbo, PLIDA's Past President, encouraging our members to support this appeal, which has the following goals

  • Provide 20 scholarships for the next educational Conference in Chicago, IL in 2020.
  • Support research needed to develop two new position statements.
  • Provide funding for research and development of educational webinar content.

You may choose to donate in memory or honor of a child or individual who has touched your life or simply because our mission is one you understand and support. Your contribution will be acknowledged on the PLIDA website, and if you choose, an acknowledgment will be sent to the family you honor and remember. Your contribution will widen the circle of support and provide a ray of sunshine to so many bereaved families and/or their clinicians.

To double or even triple the impact of your gift, ask your employer to match your donation. Companies of all sizes will match donations that their employees make to charitable organizations. Simply request a Matching Gift Form from your company, complete it, and submit the form to PLIDA along with your gift. Completed forms can be sent with your personal gift to:
