Become a Founder

This is a nonprofit, all-volunteer-run cemetery: only gravediggers are paid. We depend on tax-deductible contributions in any amount to continue making the forest accessible to all.

Our fundraising target for the first year is $100,000:

  • $50,000 for the first 1/4 mi of the accessible Cemetery Lane
  • $30,000 for a mini-excavator to help with digging through rock
  • $20,000 for a garage, tools, and signage

We have already raised $50,000, and now we are asking for your support as Founders of Vermont Forest Cemetery.

Ways to help if you can give $100 or less:

  • Donate!
    • Thank you. We are incredibly grateful. Every little bit helps.
  • Try "Friendsraising"
    • If you can give $25, can you recruit 5 more to also give $5?
  • Help us spread the word
    • Talk to friends about natural burial and VFC.
    • We are hoping to hold some fun and interesting events. If you know of venues that would be willing to host us or reduce their rate for a space, please let us know!
