Membership

Membership

What if you could help us produce daring and innovative programming; restore and preserve historic monuments and architecture; offer students an opportunity to learn about history, science and nature; and provide a Philadelphia community a place of recreation and respite? You can do all that and more as a Member of the Friends of Laurel Hill Cemetery.

Keeping the cemetery open daily with free admission, a small staff and limited resources, the Friends work hard to ensure that this irreplaceable National Historic Landmark remains accessible to the public. Your support makes our work both possible and worthwhile. There is no better way to show that support than through the Gift of Membership.
