Support the People of Ukraine

The invasion of Ukraine by Russia is devastating for the people of Ukraine. Thousands of civilians and Ukrainian soldiers have been killed in the Russian invasion. And this number will continue to rise as Russian forces push further into Ukraine.

TAPS International supports TAPS Ukraine and all those who stand up for freedom and democracy in Ukraine. We're helping to meet the list of needs they share. Families of those killed in Ukraine need supplies from baby formula to sleeping bags. Funds collected by TAPS International will be transmitted directly to TAPS Ukraine.

Create a Global Community

Our goal at TAPS International is to share best practices in peer based emotional support programs; to bring the surviving families of coalition partners who served together and died together into an international network of support; to strengthen an understanding between cultures of coalition partners that grief is universal; and to give surviving families a voice in creating stable societies, thereby continuing the mission their loved one died for.

From organizing annual global working group gatherings, leading hope & healing expeditions to communities experiencing traumatic loss, localizing opportunities for meaningful employment of widows, and creating new content that speaks to the universality of the grief experience, TAPS convenes the world's citizens within the shared values of family and community.
