Support the Annual Fund

December 4, 2019

As a friend of Mount Auburn, you have your own story of how and when you first discovered the Cemetery. People return here for countless reasons, but they all reflect the bond that visitors have forged with this beautiful landscape and historic landmark. In this season of giving, we hope you will join us in supporting this special place by making a gift to the Annual Fund.

Everything that we love about Mount Auburn is supported by the Annual Fund. Your gift will enable us to maintain our status as a world-class arboretum and vibrant horticultural collection, maintained year-round by our skilled horticultural team. Annual Fund gifts also support ongoing preservation efforts which ensure that the Cemetery’s most significant monuments survive the pressures of weather and time, to continue to provide wonder and inspiration to future generations. Our ever-growing and popular slate of public programming, ranging from lectures and wildlife tours to musical performances and film screenings, are likewise significantly underwritten by your donations. And of course, your gift allows us to preserve our collections of documents, photographs, and historical ephemera that tell the story of Mount Auburn’s beginnings and evolution as the country’s first rural garden cemetery.

A gift to Mount Auburn’s Annual Fund goes directly to sustain all the wonderful elements of this unique place. In return for your support, you’ll receive special membership benefits including free access to public programs, invitations to special events, and discounts at partner organizations. We hope you will consider making a gift today at or calling our office at 617-607-1982. Your generosity ensures that everyone can continue to explore this welcoming urban oasis and discover why they love it as much as you do.
