It is without a doubt that Elmwood Cemetery could not have remained the open, active, vibrantly green cemetery that it is today without the deeply generous support of the following individuals. Anne Stokes, Co-Chair of the Return To Elmwood Endowment Campaign, shared these words regarding the donations and pledges received to Elmwood:

"From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for your very generous donations to the Return To Elmwood Endowment Campaign. Your commitment to the future of Elmwood shines like a beacon to those of us who serve on Elmwood's Board of Trustees. It is a reminder to us of just how special this hallowed place is to all. Because your contributions have solidified the security of Elmwood, the Board of Trustees and staff are committed to maintaining Elmwood at its very best.

The purpose of the endowment campaign was to rebuild and further fortify the endowment fund, which suffered during this last recession. A one million dollar challenge grant donated anonymously has been received into Elmwood's endowment fund. This plus your mathcing gifts and pledges, totaling over three quarters of a million dollars, will strengthen the endowment fund for years to come.

The state of Elmwood Cemetery is now strong because of you. Once agin, thank you for your deep generosity. Memphis will have a well-kept, well-managed cemetery. That is our promise."

The following donors are the outstanding citizens who stepped forward to support Elmwood during a critical time in its history. We, the Board of Trustees, staff, families and friends of Elmwood, wish to acknowledge with gratitude the following contributors to the Return To Elmwood Endowment Campaign.
