The Funeral Service Foundation is launching its fourth matching gift campaign in partnership with The Messenger Co. Now through July 1, Foundation supporters can do twice the good with one donation.

“Our team supports the Funeral Service Foundation because we believe in the impact that comes from serving families well. It is the little things that make a big difference,” said Heather Garman, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for The Messenger Co. “Helping someone appropriately honor their loved one and get them started on their grief journey can make the world of difference to a person, a family or an entire community.  What we do and how well we do it is critically important; let’s keep fighting to get better each and every day.”

A Foundation supporter since 2003, Messenger’s matching gifts have inspired countless donors to support the Foundation through one-time and recurring donations, gifts made in memory or honor of a loved one or colleague, and cremation recycling proceeds. No matter the means of contribution, all gifts carry forward the Foundation’s mission of investing in people and programs to strengthen funeral service and lift up grieving communities.

“We are so grateful for Messenger’s continued generosity, and for the generosity they’ve inspired from others in the profession,” said Foundation Executive Director Lee Wiensch, CFRE. “Their philanthropic spirt echoes throughout our work to elevate the profession and promote meaningful memorialization.”

Donations made to the Foundation through July 1 are eligible for matching, including contributions by mail (Funeral Service Foundation, 13625 Bishop’s Drive, Brookfield, WI 53005) or online.
