Speaking Grief is a public media initiative aimed at creating a more grief-aware society by validating the experience of grievers and helping to guide those who wish to support them. The documentary was produced by WPSU and funded by the New York Life Foundation and features candid interviews with families whose losses include stillbirth, suicide and more.
The Kai's Journey Series is a story that follows a boy named Kai and his mother as they deal with a profound loss in their family. An extension of the Foundation’s mission, this narrative provides a powerful example for children and families looking to understand and process grief.
Those on the front lines of this pandemic are acting on their love to protect families and save lives. In response, the New York Life Foundation partnered with Cigna Foundation to create the Brave of Heart Fund (the Fund) powered by E4E; honoring healthcare workers and volunteers who go to hospitals and medical facilities every day, knowingly putting themselves in harm's way while working with COVID-19 positive patients. The Fund provides support to families of frontline healthcare works and healthcare volunteers who lost their lives fighting COVID-19.
