Matching Jewelry Grant
One Bright Star Jewelry

The parent’s star has a small diamond embedded into one of the five points. The star without a diamond is intended for siblings and loved ones.

Matching Grants are available to help offset the cost of the OBS Gold Pin/Pendant. Please fill out the simple form below to apply for a Matching Grant. Your application will be reviewed by our Board of Directors and you will be notified by email if your application is approved or not (approval depends on annual budget available).

This is a Matching Grant, which means if approved One Bright Star will cover half of the Jewelry item cost and the applicant must pay the other half of the cost.

Funeral Expense Grants

We work with local funeral homes to make this grant available.

One Bright Star offers a funeral expense grant to assist families in Southern Minnesota with the overwhelming burden of expenses when they experience the death of a child. 

Stay at Faith's Lodge


The tranquil setting of Faith’s Lodge provides a peaceful escape for families coping with the death of a child to refresh their minds and spirits while spending time with others who understand their experiences. Long weekend retreats combine professional grief counseling, therapeutic experiences, and group activities that help families heal. As the first dedicated retreat facility of its kind, our goal is to connect families and give them tools for coping with grief and its challenges in a healthy way.

One Bright Star offers a grant to families for a stay at Faith’s Lodge, a beautiful grief retreat center, to assist families after the loss of a child. This retreat allows families to connect and move forward in their grief journey.
