We believe that cemeteries are not for the dead - they are for the living. From statues and fountains to glorious gardens, cemeteries are dedicated to preserving the heritage of the communities they serve. Maintaining a cemetery can be difficult, particularly in a small community where funding is minimal and resources are sparse.

Friends of Rural Cemeteries is dedicated to helping those cemeteries that may have fallen on hard times or might otherwise lack the means to maintain the highest level of service. We are a non-profit organization that serves as a resource for such cemeteries.

From ground maintenance and proper business planning to financial assistance and revenue generation, Friends of Rural Cemeteries helps ensure that all cemeteries pay respect to the communities they serve.


"The true worth of a man is to be measured by the objects he pursues."

Marcus Antoninus Roman Emperor
