Join the HYWC

The Hot Young Widows Club is a private group for people who have lost their significant others. We use an inclusive definition of the word “widow” to mean someone who lost their romantic love partner to death (e.g., you don’t need to have been married). Oh, and the “hot” and “young” parts apply to everyone, we promise.

Ready to join the best crappy group ever? First, we recommend you read what we’re about to make sure this is the right place for you. Then, read on (and read thoroughly — there is a lot of information here, and all of it’s important).

How to join:

  • There is a one-time, tax-deductible application donation of $25 to join the HYWC. Need help covering the fee? Click here to apply for assistance. Otherwise, fill out and submit the registration form here.

    Proof of death is required for entry to protect the safety of our members — no exceptions. If you don’t have a link to your person’s obituary or death notice, you may send a picture of their death certificate. Please black out the social security number and any other sensitive information before you send the photo.

    Your name must be mentioned in the obituary or on the death certificate for entry. Again, this is to protect the HYWC and its members.

  • After we’ve reviewed your application, you will receive an email with an invitation to join the group and further instructions. Please expect longer wait times for approval into the group, as we are currently in the middle of a re-structure.
