The Rockland Community Foundation has announced the addition of the following new fund to its portfolio: the Green Cemetery Fund.
The Green Cemetery Fund has been created with the goal of establishing a sustainable alternative to conventional cemeteries, offering ecologically sound burial options and a natural return to earth. Each burial supports restoration and preservation of pristine, underdeveloped open space. Fund owner Kerry Potter elected to establish the Green Cemetery Fund on Earth Day. “On a day which advocates support in protecting the environment, I am grateful that the Rockland Community Foundation has provided me the opportunity to set up the Green Cemetery Fund,” says Potter.
The Green Cemetery Fund joins with other funds in the Foundation’s diverse portfolio that are working to make a difference in the lives of people throughout Rockland County. Please consider supporting the fund by donating today. The Rockland Community Foundation is committed to improving the quality of life for all people in Rockland County by increasing charitable giving.
