Bequests

As a non-profit organization, we are limited in our sources of income.  We rely on the sale of burial plots to fund the annual maintenance of the cemetery.  Some years our expenses out number our income, other years are a little more favorable.  This income leaves very little, if any, remaining funds to make improvements to the grounds or buildings.   Our major source of funding for improvements has been from individuals willing to directly fund an improvement or by monetary bequests in the wills or estates of individuals.  Our new Garrett Road entrance is a result of a bequest that directed us to use the monies for “Beautification and Improvement” of the cemetery.
