In 2014, the Board of Directors of Greenwood Cemetery created Friends of Greenwood Cemetery, Inc. Pictured above are tree plantings from our fund raising efforts.
Mission statement: The Corporation is organized to support the historical significance and preservation of Greenwood Cemetery. Friends is a 501©3 non-profit organization established to help provide for the long term preservation of the cemetery through charitable donations.
Working with a landscaper, Friends developed a master plan to replace trees improving the borders and giving the entire cemetery a much more peaceful and warmer appearance. Other Friend’s projects have been purchasing benches placed throughout Greenwood, helping in the creation of a new section in Greenwood and assisting Greenwood with the renovation costs of Prairie Green, Greenwood’s green burial area.
