As you may be aware The Compassionate Friends is a non profit 501(C) 3 organization. Each local chapter is supported by tax deductible donations. All members who work to setup the meetings and events are volunteers and receive no compensation. 

Most of our expenses are related to producing the newsletters, the much loved annual candle lighting and our annual butterfly release in the summer.

We have recently enrolled our chapter in the Kroger Community Rewards Program. This program is free to you and all you have to do is link you Kroger Plus Card to the Kroger Community Rewards Program and select Miami Valley Chapter of The Compassionate Friends and we will receive a small percentage each quarter from Kroger.

You can enroll your card here:

If you have not enrolled for an online Kroger account you will need to click on the Create Account button first before enrolling your Kroger Card.
