The MOM Project

We are a nonprofit organization that provides support to families who have lost a baby during pregnancy or infancy.

The programs we offer include the following:

  • Local Support Group to serve the Southern Illinois area.
  • E-Mail List
  • Community Events such as picnics, fundraisers, etc.
  • Commemorative Birth Certificates are issued to parents of stillborn babies who did not receive one by their state.
  • Recognition of Life Certificates are issued to parents of babies who were miscarried.
  • Bereaved Mothers Bracelets are offered free of charge, in the birthstone or color of their choice as a remembrance of their baby.

Note:  We are currently asking a small donation to help offset the cost of mailing these items.  The items themselves are still free, but the cost of mailing the items has been one that we have not been able to keep up with.  We know that these items are very important to grieving families and appreciate your understanding.

Our organization relies heavily on donations from the general public to continue operation.  We are a 501(c)(3) Tax Exempt Nonprofit Organization recognized by the IRS as a public charity.

To make a donation, send a check or money order payable to The MOM Project to:
