Fair Ridge is a not-for-profit tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(13) of the Internal Revenue Code. We have a small endowment, mainly funded by a portion of the proceeds of plot sales.  The income from this fund is used to pay for annual maintenance and repairs.  Snow plowing, tree work and repairs to monuments and grave markers are constant expenses, and their cost has increased significantly in recent years.

Fortunately, we have been able to cover needed maintenance and other expenditures, thanks to the generosity of several members of the local community who wish to remain anonymous.  However, the Board has determined that we need to take steps to enhance our endowment, both to ensure that we are able to maintain the Cemetery property in the manner that the plot owners and the community expect, and also to fund the new projects.

We hope you will consider making a tax deductible gift to the Cemetery.  Contributions of any size are welcome.  All donations are fully tax deductible.

Checks can be made payable to Fair Ridge Cemetery and sent to 476 Quaker Road, Chappaqua, NY 10514. 

Gifts of securities are also welcome. Please call John or Didi at 914-238-4507 for transfer instructions.
