Farewell With Grace seeks to compassionately lift a financial burden from families who have lost a loved one by providing funds to assist with the cost of burial or cremation services. We also offer families comprehensive bereavement care, pre-planning services and gravesite beautification.
Farewell With Grace is run by our board of directors and managed by our executive director, Lisa Mason, who handles the day to day operations. We have an amazing group of volunteers who share in our vision of giving families in need, the opportunity to provide their loved ones a farewell with grace.
We seek funding from private foundations, government grants, individual solicitations and fundraisers. We solicit contributions "in kind" from funeral homes, cemeteries, and other service providers. In addition, we negotiate with funeral homes to provide "at cost" funeral and burial services.
While you find your way in the painful time, challenging decisions have to be made about the best way to honor your loved one and give them a proper burial or cremation.
Farewell With Grace, (FWG) offers some valuable tips on what to do in the first 48 hours of your loved ones death.
Our founder, Lisa Mason, listened to hundreds of grieved families in Texas-and across the country- plea for assistance to help bury their deceased family members. Distraught by the death of their loved ones and overwhelmed by conversations with family members who felt inadequate because they lacked the financial resources to bury their loved ones. Lisa knew there had to be a way to minimize the overwhelming stress these people felt.
Lisa spent numerous hours contacting social service agencies and researching existing literature to find agencies to aid families in giving their loved one's a proper farewell. After extensive research, she discovered there were very few organizations that helped families cover these expenses.
Determined to bridge this gap in service, Lisa founded Farewell With Grace, (FWG). FWG is a non-profit organization devoted to assisting families with donated burial plots, vaults, grave liners, assist with cremation expenses, and/or open and close of grave fee, floral arrangements, caskets, urns, funeral programs, grave markers, gravesite beautification projects, bereavement support and more.
