Philip Rogers Scholarship Fund

The tenth anniversary celebration of Philip’s life and death

In his last year, my late husband Philip was writing a blog about what was happening and what he was learning from the (un)welcome guest in his body, stomach cancer. He was a wonderful writer, and these blogs he later turned into the beginning of a book. Sadly, He died before that could be finished.

But if he hadn’t died, Before I Go Solutions would never have existed, and thousands of people would not have heard about the importance of end of life plans.

To mark the tenth anniversary of his death, you have the opportunity to help our mission to make end of life plans as commonplace as birth plans by contributing to our Philip Rogers Scholarship Fund.

The Scholarship Fund provides assisted places on our accredited End of Life Plan Facilitators Programme, for people from marginalised corners of our community (like BIPOC) and/or those from countries where the average income means the BIGS course fees are out of reach.  See more about the Facilitators Programme here

It enables participants to become fully qualified Facilitators, bring this work to their own communities and help others get their end of life plan done.
