"Friends of Mount Olivet"
Mount Olivet is many things, but foremost it is a cultural landscape—the fusion between nature and humankind. The “Friends of Mount Olivet” group will help administer the mission of our 501 (c) (3) non-profit Preservation and Enhancement Fund which was created in 2017 with a mission of preserving our historic cemetery records, physical structures such as buildings and most important, the thousands of gravestones and monuments that populate our grounds.
Our hope is to educate visitors and local residents alike of the fascinating background of our cemetery, and those who reside in it. The “Friends” group and related activities are designed to generate awareness, enthusiasm and fundraising opportunities through engaging and entertaining educational programs, special events and anniversary commemorations. Stewardship for the future of this hallowed ground is paramount, as we will continue to raise funds for signature reparation projects and increase our documented record through additional historical and genealogical research and documentation.
