Friends of Hope Cemetery & Woods

Friends of Hope Cemetery & Woods, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was established to support Hope Cemetery Corporation in its efforts to conserve the woods and continue the high quality maintenance of the iconic garden-style cemetery.

We are deeply committed to ensuring a bright future for the Cemetery and the Woods. As such, we are collaborating with Kennebunk Land Trust on the Hope Woods Conservation Initiative, which will establish a conservation easement protecting the 72 acres of Hope Cemetery’s undeveloped land.

This will allow for further enhancement of the trail system already in place, increased opportunities for the community to explore and enjoy the woods, and will grow Hope Cemetery’s endowment to guarantee that the funds needed to maintain the cemetery will be available in perpetuity.
