In 2022, our founders, Nick and Nancy Hungerford, started Elizabeth's Smile to help millions of children who will lose a parent, inspired by their daughter, Elizabeth.
We empower grieving children to build resilience and cope with their grief in healthy and meaningful ways. We work to ensure that our research and programs are free and accessible to all who need them.
We exist to remind children they are not alone and that it is ok to be a child, to smile while one also grieves.
Elizabeth’s Smile is a charity that runs like an innovative start-up. Our two focuses as a charity are research and building scalable products.
Some of the children who inspire our work:
The inspiration for our name, Elizabeth represents the promise each child we support holds.
Known for her vibrant smile, she is the child of our co-founders, Nick and Nancy Hungerford.
We're creating Elizabeth's Smile so that she and other children will be supported as they grow, and know they're never alone.
