Supporting children in your community
Matthews Children’s Foundation is a nonprofit organization which supports local children’s charities across the United States. Matthews Aurora Funeral Solutions and Matthews Cemetery Products are proud to partner with our Funeral and Cemetery customers to support all aspects of child welfare. Matthews Aurora Funeral Solutions and Matthews Cemetery Products make a donation to the Foundation for every casket and memorial purchased through participating customers. Participating Funeral Homes and Cemeteries then sponsor children-focused nonprofits in their local communities to apply for grants. Grants are awarded three times a year, and participating Funeral Homes and Cemeteries present the grant award to its sponsored charitable organization. Since its inception in 1992, the Foundation has granted nearly $4 million to community-based, nonprofit children’s organizations nationwide.
