With your help this vision can become a reality …

Here’s some ways you can assist the earthfunerals project:

Make a Financial Donation to the New England Natural Burial Ground Project

The development of the New England Project has been planned in logical stages, with the first stage leading to the next and so on. It began with identifying a suitable site. Currently, a Development Application is being prepared to lodge with Uralla Shire Council. In the event the application is approved, the development of the burial ground, and establishment of a community funeral service, will follow concurrently.

Our fundraising program is matched to the stages of the development plan. The funds raised are held in trust by the Starfish Foundation until the target amount for the current stage has been secured. This allows you to support the earthfunerals‘ project with confidence, and, of course, donations are fully tax deductible.

The first fundraising target of $28,000 for the Development Application stage was achieved with the generous support of the donors listed below.

We are pleased now to announce the second stage fundraising target of $72,060 for the development of the Natural Burial Ground infrastructure.

If you, your family, or group are able to make a donation of $1,000 or greater, please contact us.
