A portion of each purchase is set aside in an endowment care trust fund. The purpose of this it to ensure that the cemetery maintains its high standards and beauty forever. Gilbert Memorial Park takes great pride in having an endowment care fund that far exceeds the state’s minimum requirement. We feel strongly that the minimum state requirement is dramatically below the amount required to keeping a cemetery looking the way your family expects it to and deserves. Those who only meet the state minimum are likely to experience trouble in maintaining a high standard of appearance in the future. Our focus on a healthy endowment trust fund ensures you that the cemetery will look as good or better 100 years from now as it does today.
