Angel Gowns of WNY, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity, is dedicated to creating beautiful final-photo and burial gowns, handcrafted by volunteers, from generously donated wedding gowns to offer comfort to grieving families during their time of loss.

Our Mission

We are Angel Gowns of WNY and we are dedicated to making Angel Gowns for babies that never make it home from the hospital. We accept donations of new or used wedding gowns.

All Angel Gowns are donated to Hospitals, Bereavement Organizations, and Funeral Homes to offer the bereaved parents this gift, made with love, for their Childs’ final burial. A small gesture to properly honor their child is all we’re hoping to provide. As one father stated when he received an Angel Gown for his baby girl, “This is the only wedding dress my daughter will ever wear.”

“There’s no tragedy in life like the death of a child. Things never get back to the way they were.”
