How You Can Help

The purpose of this website is to make information about the Historic Burying Ground Initiative and each of its burying grounds available to those who have an interest in American history, genealogy, and preservation. In addition to City of Boston funding, we also actively pursue grants to make our funds go even further. However, there remains so much more to do.

If your family, business, or foundation would like to contribute, or if you would like further information, please contact the Historic Burying Grounds Initiative. Contributions made payable to the Fund for Parks and Recreation can be designated for a specific purpose or project and are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

We thank you for your continuing support.
