Ryan's Tree is provided at no cost to participants, as it relies on the generosity of various communities and organizations, such as the Highmark Foundation's Highmark Healthy High 5. Through the donations we currently receive, we are able to provide the guided peer support services to grieving children and offer various expressive activities.

Additional support is always needed and welcome.

Every dollar makes a difference. Your donation will go directly to providing activities for the children to express their feelings through discussion, art, music, movement and physical release.
