Do you know a widow who could benefit from learning to live again? That's where MWC can help!

Help widows discover who they are now, because a large part of them died with their husbands...

Mission Statement: "We serve to empower widows to lean into life, build resilience and release their potential to make a positive difference in the world".

By supporting Modern Widows Club, you are partnering with an organization that is helping widows find their identity again, educate themselves on how to live independently and be surrounded by an encouraging support system who knows exactly what they are going through. While there are many beneficial grief organizations around, Modern Widows Club is different as to we help widows thrive, look past their grief and release their potential to make a positive difference in the world with the positive support of their fellow wisters (widow sisters).

That the secondary losses are what crush us…. When you lose a partner, you lose much more that person. You lose a whole support system, your security, your standing in society and sometimes, your sanity.


We currently have 21 chapters throughout the U.S. that meet on a monthly basis to connect with the ladies in their area with more set to open soon. We hope to add even more chapters in the new year, as the need is large, and we have an ongoing waiting list of leaders ready to build MWC chapters but need financial support to make this happen.

Problem Challenge: "Currently, there are approximately 14 million widows in the U.S., 245 million widows globally and about 585 million children who are directly affected. Those numbers are growing every day! Widows from across the globe have been historically undervalued, stigmatized, isolated and deemed voiceless socially, economically, emotionally, and spiritually. Modern Widows Club is committed to being advocates to give widows a voice, enable and empower them to move forward and become vital members of society once again able to thrive".

The scary statistics that most don't know:

  • There ARE 14M widows in the USA, 34% are not retired
  • The average age of an American widow is 59.4
  • That 49% of widows earn less than 25K/year and widowhood is often the ticket to poverty
  • That 740K widows in the US are living in extreme poverty who were unprepared
  • These proud women rarely will share this or ask for help
