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 & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries.

Keeping the cemeteries open daily with free admission, a small staff and limited resources, the Friends work hard to ensure that both historic sites remain 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.

If you are already a Member of the Friends, please consider increasing your contribution this year so that we can meet the many challenges that lie ahead. If you have not supported us in the past, then now is the perfect time to become involved. The Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries extend our sincerest gratitude to all new and returning members! Thank you for helping to make our work and progress a reality.
