Forest Home Cemetery and Arboretum is meant to be shared. Preservation of our grounds and monuments requires significant resources, and there are several ways you can help us keep this Milwaukee treasure beautiful for generations to come.

Support Us

Annual Fund

Your gift to the Annual Fund provides the resources to restore monuments and buildings, maintain the park-like landscape and trees and expand our educational and public programs.

Monument Preservation

Each year, the Forest Home Historic Preservation Association focuses on a few monument preservation projects to properly restore gravestones and preserve the memory of important residents. You can help with this cause.

Legacy Giving

An easy way to establish your legacy, is to leave a simple bequest to Forest Home Cemetery and Arboretum, naming the Forest Home Historic Preservation Association in your will.

Memorial Tree Program

Memorial trees grow and change over time, but what endures is the memory of your loved one and the significance of the era in which they passed. Your tax-deductible gift pays for the planting of a young tree.


Forest Home Cemetery and Arboretum is always looking for volunteers to lead tours, staff special events and work in the gardens. Do you have time to give?
