Dorchester Foundation Raising Funds For Cemetery Directory

The Dorchester Community Foundation Fund is working on its next project -- a directory for the Dorchester Cemetery.

This structure will help loved ones and friends find the burial site of those who have been laid to rest in our community's cemetery just east of the village.

To help raise the necessary funds for this important project, the Foundation is offering an engraved brick sponsorship, according to an e-mail we received.

Personalized engraved bricks will be used in the construction of the cemetery directory.  

  • The price for a 4” x 8” brick with one or two 16 character lines (spaces are counted) is $100 or 3 lines for $125.
  • An 8” x 8” brick with one to six lines is $200; or adding a logo with print on the 8” x 8” brick is $250.
  • This sponsorship is similar to the Park Shelter brick wall.

Established over a decade ago, the Dorchester Community Foundation Fund is guided by one central mission:  To raise funds for worthy projects that will enhance Dorchester and our quality of life.  Contributions to the Foundation are deductible for income and estate tax purposes.  You may consider giving cash, outright gifts (including bushels of grain), memorial gifts, deferred gifts (trusts-life insurance policies etc.), gift annuity or real estate.

A non-profit affiliated fund of the Nebraska Community Foundation, the Dorchester Community Foundation has been instrumental in various projects and activities.  These include the city park's new playground equipment and shelter; annual scholarships; the Charlie Havlat Memorial; the village welcome signs; and the steak and chicken feeds.

See the contribution form for more details.  Make checks payable to: Dorchester Community Foundation Fund, c/o Peg Bergmeyer,101 Washington Ave., Dorchester, NE 68343.
