Art for Charlie Foundation


The Foundation supports children in hospice and families bereaved by the death of a child. We promote the advancement of pediatric palliative care through conferences and advocacy. We raise money and awareness through art events because art affirms life and beauty and brings joy.

Our mission was inspired by the spirit and courage of a small boy, Charlie Waller, who was diagnosed with an inoperable brain stem tumor. The Foundation was established one year later in East Lansing, Michigan, as a 501(c)3 charity.
