Why We’re Here

Everyone Dies is a nonprofit that strives to:

  • Educate the public about the processes associated with dying and death including the full range of choices available.
  • Empower the public regarding options and evidence-based information to help them guide their care and effectively
  • communicate with their health care practitioners and family.
  • Normalize dying and reinforce that even though everyone dies, first we live, and that every day we are alive is a gift.

About Our Name

The registered nonprofit name is Everyone Dies – Drinks on the Driveway, Inc. So you may be thinking, the latter part has to have a story – and you’re right!

“Drinks on the Driveway” originated with our Co-Founder David and his former wife Stacia (who died suddenly in 2017). Stacia organized a weekly gathering in their neighborhood, which took place on their driveway. David & Marianne considered making that the name of our non-profit, but the name was already taken. It is a way of remembering Stacia after she died, as her spirit continues in our work.
