Our goal: 1,000 “Grief-Sensitive Schools” by 2020.

1 in 15 will lose a parent or sibling by the time they are 18.

Through our Grief Sensitive School Initiative (GSSI), the New York Life Foundation will train thousands of New York Life employees and agents to give presentations about grief in schools and provide grants to support schools as they strive to become more grief-sensitive. They’ll serve as GSSI ambassadors to help raise educators’ awareness of grief’s impact on school-age children, and direct them to free online resources, including a state-by-state guide to local grief organizations and camps.

Supporting grieving children when they need it most.

Speaking about the death of a loved one helps the healing process.
