Below are a few ways you can become a Community Partner with Three Little Birds!
Legacy Sponsor – $125+ annual donation
Three Little Birds offers parents an opportunity for parents to heal by creating a legacy project or event in memory of their baby. Big or small, these projects bring awareness to our mission and allow for family, friends and loved ones an opportunity to support the family after loss. We call this "parenting from beyond the grave" and it has a tremendously positive impact on the families who create them. Legacy projects also allow families in our nest to help us expand our footprint throughout the region and shatter the stigma associated with loss.
Preferred Provider Sponsor - $325 annual donation or in-kind services
A trusted relationship between medical providers and our families is of utmost importance to us. We have a list of providers with whom our families have had exemplary care (i.e., bedside manner, financial flexibility and more). Joining our preferred provider sponsorship program is ideal for funeral homes, mental health professionals, boutique sonographers, photographers, gym owners or those providing in-kind donations of materials or services. Donated funds benefit the physical, emotional, and spiritual healing of our families by helping us alleviate financial burdens during this difficult time. Sponsors will also receive quarterly emails with information on training, medical reports/abstracts, and giveaways from our nest!
Program Sponsor (Community Partner) - $400+ annual donation or in-kind services/products
We offer several programs to our families featuring complimentary or discounted support. Included is our Palliative Care Program for families who receive a life-limiting or uncertain fetal diagnosis, as well as our Pregnancy After Loss Mentorship Program for families continuing their family building journeys. Image is Everything Studios and Wondertime 3D/4D, LLC were founding partners for both programs. They both provide complimentary support for our Palliative Care Program, as well as discounts for services for any family pregnant after a loss. Both businesses have seen a 50-75% ROI rate, with families valuing the support and wanting to give back to their business. Other current community partners include Hey Mama Lactation & Perinatal Care, as well as two local mental health counselors providing free or discounted virtual support.
Bereavement Training Program Sponsor - $650 annual donation
Our Perinatal Bereavement Training Program offers both clinicians and maternal/fetal professionals, the opportunity to attend a peer-led training course given by loss parents and other advocates. Our training supports strategic communication scripts, in addition to assistance in promoting diversity and inclusion. Hands-on training to facilitate bonding, memory making, and photography support is also taught. Three Little Birds facilitated training at Jefferson Health Washington Township and Inspira Health Systems Mullica Hill and Vineland via a scholarship training program. Donations being made under this sponsorship will be used to expand our program and future scholarship opportunities for professionals.
Event Sponsor – Signature event sponsorship – Food & Beverage Sponsor ($300/event); Major Sponsorship ($600+/event)
Three Little Birds hosts several events annually supporting parents on non-traditional paths to parenthood. This includes events honoring Bereaved Mother’s Day (first Sunday in May), Bereaved Father’s Day (June) as well as our annual Wave of Light celebration honoring Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day (October 15th). Corporate sponsors would be responsible for contributing either financially or through in-kind donations in support of these events. Our most recent event, the annual Wave of Light, successfully hosted nearly four dozen families. They came together in honor of their shared loss experience, seeking connection, validation and community.
Major Corporate Sponsor - $1000 annual donation
Three Little Birds provides our services at NO CHARGE and do not directly solicit support from the families we serve. We believe that NO ONE should have to pay for support during this difficult time. Corporate financial donations support our general operating fund, as well as support services and groups. Examples of our current corporate sponsors include the WaWa Foundation, Holman Leasing and Women’s Way Grantors. With their support, we have been able to open our office/meeting space, the Healing Nest, in Blackwood, NJ where we are supporting more than 80 families.
