Support Our Cemetery Endowment Fund

We will mark our 200th anniversary in 2054. With your tax-deductible gifts, we can build the Springdale Cemetery Endowment Fund toward our goal of removing reliance on public funds for operation by 2054. Currently, the cemetery is publicly funded by a management authority consisting of the City of Peoria, Peoria County and Peoria Park District.

Our endowment fund will provide sustained, long-term support, ensuring the caretaking of the cemetery remains steadfast for future generations and keeps Springdale beautiful and historic—forever.
