TAKE EVERYTHING PERSONALLY

Your child was everything. So we take extra care during the EVEalution process, with members of our board personally vested in every application and decision. Ask for help »

WE’RE IN THIS TOGETHER

No one should ever have to go through this alone. Let’s work together to turn grieving into giving, and stories and ideas into workable solutions and effective healing. Meet our partners »

TELL IT LIKE IT IS

What you are going through is real. So are your Reasons to BeliEve. Let’s speak truth to our trials while expressing empathy and optimism at every opportunity. Read their stories »

GRASSROOTS AND STAR GAZING

It’s the little things that matter, and we will miss, most. Let’s harness the power of human connection to strengthen each other while spreading our message of hope.

BELIEVE IN BETTER

No one knows how precious (and imperfect) life is like someone whose child has died. But we can help make it better in our own small way—and in some very, very big ways.

Still Together Certificate

There’s nothing that can prepare a parent for when their child is stillborn. But as a society, we can be better prepared to help acknowledge their loss so they can begin the rebuilding process. Independently funded by our founders, Still Together is our commitment to working with local and state leaders to redesign the post-stillborn death experience—beginning with a stillborn certificate that reflects a deeper understanding of and greater sensitivity towards this life-changing event.

Board of BeliEvers

Honesty, empathy, passion, patience and generosity—these are the ideals that form the foundation of our Foundation, and the criteria we followed for choosing each of our volunteer board members. We think Eve would have approved.

Michael P. Haag

Michael is an attorney with Haag Law Offices, P.A., a regular speaker and published author on nonprofit, corporate and tax issues. A former adjunct professor at Hamline University and host of radio talk show, “Seeking Precedence – a Christian Perspective to Legal Issues,” Michael also serves on the boards of several nonprofit organizations.

Kelly Mcdyre

In 2012, Kelly brought her experience in sports management, events and fundraising to Faith’s Lodge as Executive Director after the sudden death of her 12-year-old nephew, Carter. She was recognized in 2016 as a Mpls/St. Paul Business Journal Women In Business Honoree and named by BizWomen as one of “100 Women to Watch in US.”

Rev. Dr. John Ross

John has served since 2004 as the Sr. Minister of Wayzata Community Church, a 3,000-member congregation seeking to inspire the world with the inclusive love of Jesus. In his ministry, John is witness to the pain in people’s lives. The sudden death of his neighbor’s 9-year old son motivates him to help anyone who suffers this unimaginable loss.

Gregory D. Soule

Greg is a real estate attorney with Malkerson Gunn Martin in Minneapolis. A committed, but imperfect, Christian, Greg and his wife have three adult children. He also had a younger brother with Downs Syndrome, who taught him patience, compassion for the less able, unconditional love, and what it’s like to ask God the “Why?” question.

Kurt Vickman

As both a non- and for-profit entrepreneur, Kurt has built and led successful start-ups for much of his life. After experientially engaging thousands of church members to be a force for good with Upper Room, he founded Good Grocer where volunteers gain access to healthy foods at affordable prices and discover their gift for contributing.

We believe strong partnerships propel us all forward. So we seek to establish productive relationships with charitable,
religious and non-profit organizations that align with our mission and values, extend our reach, and deepen our impact.
