Choosing the MISS Foundation as part of your United Way Giving

For those of you who will be filling out United Way donation forms, we would like to ask that you consider designating a portion of your contribution for the MISS Foundation.  

We are a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) volunteer-based organization committed to providing crisis support and long-term aid to families after the death of a child from any cause.  

MISS also participates in legislative and advocacy issues, community engagement and volunteerism, and programs to reduce infant and toddler death through research and education.  

The MISS Foundation was founded in Arizona by ASU Assistant Professor Joanne Cacciatore following the death of her daughter Cheyenne.  

It now has 75 chapters worldwide including active support groups, in-person and online, along with many mentors volunteering to support bereaved families.

It's simple to add the MISS Foundation to your United Way form:  On the bottom of the page, under Option C, you can fill in:
  • "MISS Foundation, 77 East Thomas Road, #112, Phoenix, AZ 85012,"
  • VSUW Agency Code "8052"
  • and the amount you'd like to designate.
Thank you for your consideration of our request especially now at holiday time.
