Support our mission

Forest Home Cemetery & Arboretum has been a non-profit since its inception in 1850. As such, it has always welcomed people from all faiths and cultural backgrounds and has provided visitors with a peaceful oasis of gardens, historic mausolea, architecture and ancient trees. Forest Home Cemetery & Arboretum is a touchstone to Milwaukee’s proud past and the final resting place for the city’s most illustrious and notable citizens. Every year, our grounds host public events that honor the dead and celebrate the living.

Your gift to the annual fund provides the resources to restore monuments and buildings, maintain the grounds and majestic trees and expand our educational and public programs. Supporting us allows us to share the history and beauty with the public as a space for the community. Please consider giving.
