The Eugene Masonic Cemetery Association (EMCA) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. It has owned, restored and operated the cemetery and Hope Abbey mausoleum since 1995. The Board of Directors is comprised entirely of volunteers, and Board meetings are held monthly. We have three part-time employees: two for grounds maintenance and one for administration and sales.
Operating revenue comes from the sale of lots, crypts, niches and scatter rights, as well as from donations from people like you. The EMCA occasionally receives grants to help with significant projects. We are quietly, but actively, building an endowment so proper maintenance of the property may continue far into the future after burial site sales cease for lack of space.
