About GatheringUS

GatheringUs is a lasting communal space that engages and gathers communities together after the loss of a loved one.

Noha Waibsnaider, the founder of GatheringUS felt the challenge of planning and executing memorials and funerals by the family and friends after the loss of their loved one. This made Noha build GatheringUs - a communal space that brings communities together through shared memories, events, resources, and funding — all in one place. GatheringUS made it possible for the families to easily crowdfund expenses, giving communities the opportune moment to contribute financial support for the funeral and related events.

Noha believes that gathering up after a death enables our communities to strengthen and support each other in the healing process. She also believes that conducting such meaningful events is a way of honoring the beloved one and celebrating their life together.

“Our mission is to gather family and friends after the loss of a loved one to support each other and celebrate their life together”.
