“There are two key reasons we selected the Funeral Service Foundation,” said David de Gorter, ClearPoint CEO and President. “The first is our shared passion and commitment to the advancement and success of funeral service professionals. The second reason is our desire to support an organization that is creating change and having an impact.”

“The Foundation is grateful for ClearPoint’s major gift, which increases our capacity to elevate education, outreach and initiatives that have a measurable impact on funeral service,” said Funeral Service Foundation Executive Director, Danelle O’Neill. “ClearPoint is a longtime Foundation supporter, and its recent major gift underscores the company’s commitment to the funeral service profession.”

As a company solely focused on providing products and services to the death care industry, ClearPoint values organizations that are devoted to the future success of the profession and its leaders. Supporting an organization whose purpose is to educate families about the importance of memorialization and provides direction and support for our industry leaders makes this a very meaningful donation for ClearPoint.

It is an honor for ClearPoint to be associated with the Funeral Service Foundation. Community outreach efforts such as its Youth & Funerals initiative and distribution of Have the Talk of a Lifetime® Conversation Cards provide hope and comfort for our youth and direction for families.
