Welcome to the Art for Charlie Foundation
The Foundation promotes the advancement of pediatric palliative care in the state of Michigan and provides help to families bereaved by the death of a child. We raise money and awareness through art events because art affirms life and beauty and brings joy. Our mission was inspired by the love 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.
We believe the biggest advancement in caring for children with a life limiting diagnosis is in sponsoring the Children's Palliative Care Coalition of Michigan.
