Tell me and I forget.
Teach me and I may remember.
Involve me and I learn.

The American Widow Project has been involving
Military Widows in their Healing since 2007.
We honor the selflessness of each of our heroes—who put serving our nation above all—with this symbolic “passing of the torch.” For many military widows, finding ways to provide hope and service in their own communities is a valuable part of the healing process. Upon project completion, we offer our thanks to grantees by placing a commemorative paver with your hero’s name at a local veteran’s memorial site.

This grant gives military widows an opportunity to make a positive and direct impact on the communities where they live, in small but meaningful ways.


Our book club is for military widows who are ready to join together in reading, learning, sharing, and integrating wisdom from our hand-selected library.

Widow Stories

Widows at all stages of life and grief are invited to share their
