A recently created fund through the Perry County Community Foundation will assist in preserving and beautifying a local cemetery.
The Derby-St. Mary’s Cemetery Fund has been established to ensure the cemetery will have the funds to help with upkeep forever. The donor chose to remain anonymous and not personalize the naming of the fund because the donor wanted everyone to see the fund as a way to honor or memorialize their own loved ones. The donor felt naming the fund after the cemetery was the best way to do this and wanted to encourage all who want to help the Derby-St. Mary’s Cemetery to do so by donating to the fund created through the Foundation.
The donor was also grateful to the Lilly Endowment, which has been able to match donations 50 cents for each dollar donated. Contact the Foundation to find out more about the match program.
Thanks to this donor caring about our community, Derby-St. Mary’s Cemetery will have funds to help preserve it forever.
