Lancaster Cemetery Support
We are a 501(c)13 non-profit organization. Any donation you make is tax deductible and your donations will be put to use almost immediately.
Our largest annual expense is grounds maintenance, and that’s split between employment expenses and equipment costs. Our part time employee manages a quick pace of 1 acre an hour, walking the mower through the winding maze of monuments. He puts in two long days a week and is supplemented by volunteer labor. All of this effort requires anywhere between 10 and 20 gallons of gas each week along with other equipment maintenance expenses.
Irregular expenses include things like tree maintenance, fence repairs, etc.
Lotholders are responsible for the repair of their monuments, but we try to repair monuments as we have the time and resources to do so. If you’d like to adopt the repair of a specific monument please get in touch to coordinate the effort. We can put you in touch with our conservator for an estimate.
