Cemetery Funds NE PA Catholic FoundationThe Catholic Foundation offers a Donor Designated cemetery fund program. Catholic parishes in the Diocese of Allentown who oversee a cemetery may participate. Cemeteries are required by law to set aside a portion of the sale of burial plots in a perpetual care account. Its purpose is to cover the long-term maintenance and upkeep of the cemetery.

The Catholic Foundation is the best option for parishes to invest and manage perpetual care cemetery funds. The benefits of donor designated cemetery funds are that they:

  • Keep up with inflation
  • Protect the intent of the funds
  • Encourage financial discipline
  • Allow the flexibility to make needed withdrawals
  • Provide a higher rate of investment returns
