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
"I find it comforting to know when I’m gone, even if I won’t be aware of it, I have helped in some way to preserve the beauty of Lake View for future generations. Not only for the people who rest here, but for those who visit.” - Patrick Holland
