The generosity of donors has fueled the National Museum of Funeral History since it began in 1992. Over the years, donations large and small have helped the Museum to grow its collection, its exhibits and the cultural and educational impact it makes upon the funeral service industry and the greater public.
Please consider a donation to the Museum. Donate because the Museum’s mission inspires you. Donate in honor of a member of the funeral service profession. Donate in memory of a loved one. Funerals and memorials are important tributes to a life well lived. You can make a one-time donation or create a living memorial by making a recurring donation to honor the life of a friend or family member.
A memorial gift is a meaningful way to remember a loved one who has passed away by making a gift in his or her memory. We will send a letter to whomever you designate, notifying them of your kind gift.
A tribute gift is a way to mark special occasions or to pay tribute to an individual who has made a difference in your life. Tribute gifts honor celebrations such as: anniversaries, births, birthdays, bar/bat mitzvah, graduations, weddings, and professional milestones, such as promotions and retirements.
Memorial and Tribute gifts allow you to honor and remember family, friends, clients and colleagues in a unique way while generously supporting the Museum. The Museum will send a letter to the person you are honoring, acknowledging your thoughtful gift. Another way you can make a Memorial or Tribute Gift is through our Buy a Brick program.
