What you need to know to organize and host a Death Café
The Death Café has become a worldwide phenomenon, popping up with events in new cities weekly, each with the intention to “put in a public space the personal experience around death.” In this upcoming ADEC webinar, presented by the first U.S. Death Café facilitator, participants will learn about the principles that govern the concept, the importance of these principles, and how to implement a Death Café. In addition, attendees will learn about best practices related to hosting an event and facilitating discussion, as well as an analysis of reoccuring themes that emerge. ADEC members receive lower rates — learn more and register today.
Make a gift to ADEC part of your legacy
A planned gift is any major gift, made in lifetime or at death, as part of a donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning. Planned giving allows you to keep your values alive and active through the workings of the association after you’re gone. It allows you to make a substantial donation to ADEC now without depleting your day-to-day income or retirement assets.
Your planned gift will ensure ADEC’s future, as well as help support research, professional education and the development of resources to help prepare the next generation of thanatologists.
