In 2021, we began trying to move our association, made up of families and community members, from just getting by with minimal mowing to a more active association. We are getting back to our roots of improving Hillcrest, not just maintaining it, and restoring its solemnity, by taking on projects such as:
Hillcrest Cemetery Memorial Association is a 501(c)(13)* non-profit organization, and all donations are tax-deductible. For verification of this information, please contact us. For all donations we will send a letter of appreciation which will serve as your receipt. No goods or services are rendered directly as a result of your donation, so the full amount may be deducted.
*About our 501(c)(13) status: When we applied for our 501(c)(3) non-profit status, the IRS required us to be listed under subsection (13) instead of (3) because of our affiliation with a cemetery. While we do not own the cemetery at this time, we still fall under this category. The only significant difference is that it allows for the accounting of additional types of contributions which are not tax-deductible (lot sales and direct charges for services) which we DO NOT accept or provide. The bottom line is that all donations to our general fund and veterans memorial fund ARE tax-deductible under IRS rules, in the same way as 501(c)(3) donations.
