PLEASE HELP US MAINTAIN
THE LOOK AND NOSTALIC FEEL
OF OUR RURAL HERITAGE & HISTORIC PLACE AS ONE OF THE OLDEST CEMETERIES IN CHICAGOLAND
First, THANK you to those who have given their time, talents, and treasures to preserving and maintaining our historic cemetery. We are extremely grateful to our donors and sincerely appreciate the generosity of everyone who remembers the Cemetery when making charitable gifts and in their estate planning. Each gift matters and helps support our work to maintain and enhance the beauty of our grounds.
The Lyonsville Cemetery Association is a recognized tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(13) of the Internal Revenue Code. As such, contributions to the Cemetery are tax deductible. We receive no local, state, or federal financial support and rely on the income from our Perpetual Care Fund (Care Fund) and gifts from individuals and estates to support our work.
Our Care Fund principal is restricted by the State and audited by them annually. Care Fund income is used to care for and maintain the Cemetery. Our primary expense is mowing and trimming of the grounds. Annually, we also address various issues such as removal of trees that have died, the planting of new trees, historic monument restoration, and any needed special project work.
Again, we hope you consider the Lyonsville Cemetery Association when making charitable gifts and in your estate planning.
