The Forest Lawn Heritage Foundation, Inc., is a 501(c)3 organization established in 1992 to assure the preservation and restoration of Forest Lawn’s historically significant buildings, landmarks, landscape, and archives, as well as the stories they tell for Western New York, the nation and the world.
The Foundation also helps educate teachers, students and the public about the vast cultural, historical, and natural resources you’ll find at Forest Lawn. We offer tours, workshops, lectures, theatrical performances and exhibitions that highlight Forest Lawn’s rich history, and remarkable natural & man-made beauty.
The Foundation’s plan for Forest Lawn’s future capitalizes upon its sedate grandeur, its living history, and its singular place in the life of Western New York. While we remain steadfast in fulfilling our core mission to provide the finest perpetual care for all who rest in peace inside our gates, we envision Forest Lawn among Western New York’s greatest public spaces, where people from all walks of life are welcome to stroll, jog, read a book beneath a tree, study their family’s past, marvel at a work of art, join a tour, listen to music, hear a lecture or be married in the chapel.
We are gratefully accepting tax-deductible donations.
