is a Philadelphia Historic Commission Landmark
the Community of Kensington In 1765
Small donations from the community are the main source of funding for the general maintenance
and upkeep of Palmer Cemetery. The $25.00 or 50.00 is what keeps the grass cut and the cemetery grounds in decent shape. Please
consider making a yearly donation to Palmer Cemetery.
those who are giving grants to non-profits such as ours will not grant money for operating expenses. Special project grants
are more common. There may be grants available that will help us to operate and care for our cemetery, but we will need the
help of a grant writer to search out those grants for which we may be eligible. A recent grant from Penn Treaty
Special Services will allow us to continue the iron fencing project at the cemetery. We are hopeful to have New Fencing along
Belgrade Street and Montgomery Avenue before the end of the year. We are very thankful for the PTSSD Grant, the positive changes
would not have happened over the last 5 years without their financial support. The cemetery still needs financial support
from the community. Small donations, as little as $20.00 per year, per household would enable us to keep the cemetery
clean and safe for all who visit. Making a donation is as easy as clicking on the PayPal link here on our website. All donations
are tax deductible. We are a 501(c)3 non profit.Thank You!
