Annual Giving

We invite you to join hundreds of donors who help sustain Riverside Cemetery’s exuberant landscape. Your gift helps provide a place of peace and beauty for all visitors. There are many ways to donate, and because the cemetery is a non-profit charitable institution, gifts are tax deductible.

Riverside Cemetery’s Board of Directors work to preserve this 36-acre treasure through annual gifts. Your gift preserves and protects the Riverside Cemetery and helps sustain the natural beauty and precious history of Riverside. For more information about Annual Giving, please contact us.
