Building on A Promise

Join our capital campaign to ensure the viability of Lake View Cemetery, now and for eternity.

Eternal Friends

Eternal Friends

Eternal means perpetual, enduring, and everlasting. Such is our relationship with friends and family who have thoughtfully chosen to remember Lake View Cemetery in their estate planning.

There are many ways to leave a legacy to Lake View Cemetery. A planned gift can be given from a will, trust, life insurance, IRA, or other means. Often there are tax incentives and benefits that encourage charitable giving. Whatever type of gift you choose, when you become a member of the Eternal Friends of Lake View Cemetery, your gift will help to ensure that our historic garden cemetery is preserved and protected... for eternity.

Let’s get you started. Suggested language for a gift in a will:

I give the sum of __ Dollars ($XX) to Lake View Cemetery Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio, or its successor or successors, for the unrestricted support of Lake View Cemetery Foundation’s mission.

If you prefer, we can assist you and your advisor to customize your impact by suggesting language for a restricted gift or purpose as well as discuss a variety of planned giving tools.

For more information or questions, please contact Leah Whidden, Executive Director at 216.453.0958 or



Susan Downie Wheeler

"Anyone can make a planned gift. If you cannot make a major gift while you are living you can make one when you are gone. You need not be a major philanthropist to make this happen. If we all made planned gifts, the impact would be tremendous in terms of sustaining institutions we care deeply about. I now visit Lake View more frequently as it is a place of great beauty and provides personal solace. It also gives me joy to know Lake View is well cared for now and will continue to be well cared for later as others make gifts of this kind."
