On Dying Well is a non-profit organization working to normalize conversations about death and dying and to develop death literacy—the practical know-how needed to plan well for the end of life—in the community.

We use different forums to support our mission including the quarterly Death Café in Ithaca, the Talking About Death Won’t Kill You educational event, films, panel discussions, workshops and more.

If you are interested in collaborating on a project or hosting a workshop for your group, please get in touch.


Explore our founder’s website, The Art of Dying Well, for inspiration—reading lists and videos—and for more practical information to help you make informed decisions about end-of-life plans for yourself and others.
