Support Riverside Cemetery Association

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.

Ed and his amazing staff offer the finest and, most importantly, the most wonderful caring when offering excellent service and beautiful cemetery stonework. They are patient and attentive to detail and go out of their way to ensure quality and perfect artwork. Their warm approach during difficult times makes an enormous difference in a difficult task for the family. It doesn't matter to them whether the family member was two- or four-legged, both are given the utmost respect, understanding, and support. They care - they really care.

I've lived in Waterbury my whole life and have never been to this cemetery. I'm glad I made the visit on this past Sunday. It's like I was in a whole different world! So serene and stunningly beautiful! I loved watching the ducks and Canadian geese in the pond.
