"The relief of those in need by reason of the emotional and financial hardship caused by bereavement following the loss of a child aged under 18, in particular by the provision of capped funeral disbursement grants to cover the fixed costs applicable to a funeral and the provision of an online mutual support community for bereaved families designed to assist with the grieving process."
The funeral of a child, by it's nature, is rarely planned for and can therefore add financial burden at a time extreme emotional distress. We aim to aleviate some of that where we can by helping to cover inevitable expenses. We will not add to that emotional distress by any means testing, so we simply provide a capped contribution to cover what we call Standard Funeral Disbursements (these are explained on our website).
But importantly, through families we have helped before, there is also a community of families with shared experiences that can talk freely with each other in secure forums to offer each other mutual support and guidance when it is needed.

As children are butterflies were such an amazing support when we lost our stillborn son Sebastian by paying for his funeral costs and being there to support us as a family I have decided to jump out of a plane (as you do!) I want to challenge myself to face my fears which are mainly planes, heights and generally plummeting to earth at a billion miles an hour to raise some much needed money for this amazing charity. Please support this amazing cause and make it impossible for me to back out. I’ve had to lose weight to make this possible as there is a minimum weight limit so this has been something which hasn’t been easy to plan but I’m now in a position to go go go!I will be paying for the jump myself so all of the money raised will go directly to the charity so they can continue with their amazing work
The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
