Cottage Grove Cemetery is a 501(c)13 non-profit organization and has benefited over the years through the generous contributions of our families and friends. If you are interested, you may support the cemetery and your contribution may be tax-deductible.

The Cemetery Board will use donated funds as appropriate, including enhancements that further beautify the cemetery and help memorialize our loved ones (for example, the new flag pole).

To qualify as a deduction for federal income tax purposes, contributions:

    ♦ must be voluntary,
    ♦ must be irrevocably dedicated to the care of the cemetery,
    ♦ may not be used for the perpetual care of a particular lot or niche,
    ♦ may not be part of the purchase price of a burial lot or niche, and
    ♦ are not deductible for federal estate and gift tax purposes.

We recommend that you seek competent tax advice regarding the deductibility of your contribution.

Your support is appreciated. Contributions may be sent to:

This flag pole is one example of how your generous gifts would be used to beautify your cemetery.

The new flag pole was installed at the south end of the cemetery on October 28, 2020.

This addition to the cemetery is the result of gifts from family and friends of the cemetery.
