As stewards of an active cemetery and a national treasure, our mission is to preserve the publicly accessible Oak Hill Cemetery, a nineteenth-century romantic garden park cemetery, its historic interment sites, structures, and records, and to support its functions and activities.
We invite you to join thousands of donors who are helping to preserve our historic site. Over time, as interment space at Oak Hill Cemetery is no longer available for purchase, we anticipate that the cemetery’s responsibilities will become those of the Preservation Foundation. The Historic Preservation Foundation Board has already started these efforts to maintain our beautiful landscape by planning, securing funding, and conducting preservation and restoration work. Recently, the Foundation created its 2018-2022 five-year Strategic Plan. Please take a minute to review the Strategic Plan and let us know your thoughts.
Our goal is to continue to be a vibrant community resource to all, therefore we need your help. There are many ways to donate, and because the Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, your gift is fully tax-deductible.
