Columbarium Strategy FREE Webinar

Build a Lasting Tribute and a strong financial future for your institution!

It's not just for churches and cemeteries anymore. We are installing columbariums in universities and even at sports facilities - places that are meaningful and significant to a loved one's life. This program is an educational forum that focuses on designing and implementing a columbarium program that will help your institution accomplish the following items:

  •  Provide an additional service to your members, alumni, fans or whoever supports your  organization.
  • Offer family and friends regular opportunities to visit the interment site of loved ones.
  • Provide additional income to support your institution's mission.
  • Help your organization provide complete arrangements for members at reasonable costs.
  • Assure long-term continuous and quality care as your facility is maintained and protected.
