Spring Lake Cemetery Historic Preservation Endowment Fund

Established 2023

spring lake cemeterySpring Lake Cemetery Historic Preservation Endowment Fund was established to fulfill the fund advisors’ charitable purposes and to maintain, beautify, and preserve the Spring Lake Cemetery in Aurora, Illinois. Additional purposes of the fund are to:

  • provide an educational benefit to the general public and promote an appreciation
    for community history by maintaining, repairing, and restoring monuments, headstones,
    and grave markers of historical or architectural significance to the community;
  • combat community deterioration and provide aesthetic enjoyment for the
    community, by preserving, beautifying, and maintaining abandoned or deteriorating
    graves of deceased persons and the cemetery in general, focusing on areas open to the
    public or the public’s view and for the care and replacement of trees, flowers,
    shrubbery, and lawns, including removal and replacement of diseased trees; and
  • lessen the burdens of governing by maintaining semi-public areas where
    maintenance would otherwise be the responsibility of the government or municipality,
    including repairs to roads, etc.

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.
