The COVID-19 Crisis Response Fund
The Funeral Service Foundation has created a fund to respond to the COVID-19 situation. The COVID-19 Crisis Response Fund has two pillars of support: emergency assistance and grief support. Designed to be flexible, the fund will provide grants for immediate needs within funeral service including emergency response to significant loss of life; grants to organizations providing services and resources to families with unresolved and complicated grief due to loss during this crisis; and grants for other important needs as funeral service continues to serve families during this rapidly evolving crisis. Please note: The costs associated with burials, memorialization, cremations, etc. are not eligible for funding.

We support funeral service in building meaningful relationships with the families and the communities it serves.
The Foundation’s vision is improved end-of-life experience for families and their loved ones.
The public recognizes and engages funeral service professionals’ expertise because it understands that meaningful memorialization is an essential part of the healing process.
The Funeral Service Foundation’s work is vitally important to our profession and I feel privileged to be a member of The Guardians Fund. From funding scholarships and initiatives, to underwriting professional development opportunities, the Foundation is impacting both current and future leaders in funeral service. I consider giving my support as doing my small part to perpetuate the profession.”
The Island Funeral Home & Crematory, Hilton Head Island, SC
