A Perpetual Care Endowment Fund grows its funds over time so that the interest earned from the Fund will eventually produce sufficient income so that annual expenses will one day be met with sufficient interest income that is generated over time in that designated account.
Another, separate opportunity to donate to the care of the cemetery is also possible and welcome: Contributions to the general cemetery checking account may also be made. This timely income will be used in the current fiscal year, in which they are donated, for the actual maintenance expenses of immediate cemetery operations. These contributions can be made payable by check to St. George Cemetery (with a notation for general cemetery maintenance) and will be entered into the St. George Cemetery Checking Account for current use. This is a separate account from the St. George Cemetery Endowment Fund.
Thank you for your generous assistance to help maintain St. George Cemetery and to secure its perpetual care.
