Last week The New York Life foundation, the charitable arm of The New York Life Insurance Company (NY Life) announced a $250,000 grant to the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS).
TAPS is a national organization that supports the families of deceased American military personnel. The grant from New York Life Charitable Foundation was used to fund TAPS’s bereavement services held during their annual National Military Survivor Seminar and Good Grief camp that were held over Memorial Day Weekend in Washington D.C.
“It takes a community of care and support to help the families left behind by our fallen military service members. We are deeply grateful to the New York Life Foundation for stepping forward to be a title sponsor of the 18 Annual TAPS Military Survivor Seminar. They are truly making a difference in the lives of Military families who are grieving the death of a loved one in service to America,” said Bonnie Carroll, founder and president of TAPS.
