Brookfield, Wis. – The Funeral Service Foundation is pleased to announce a second $50,000 major gift from Service Corporation International (SCI) in support of the Foundation’s mission to fund the projects and programs that support all of funeral service in building meaningful relationships in the community. SCI contributed its first $50,000 major gift in 2014.

In addition to its major gifts, SCI has supported the Foundation by sponsoring the Foundation’s annual Golf Classic and contributing to its Women’s Fund; this most recent contribution secures SCI’s place as a “Community Pillar” on the Foundation’s Legacy Honor Roll, which is based on cumulative giving.

“We at the Foundation are inspired by the dedication and generosity of our donors who, for three generations, have answered the call to give again and again,” said Foundation Executive Director Danelle O’Neill last night during the annual Funeral Service Foundation donor appreciation reception in Indianapolis, Indiana. “SCI’s contribution makes evident the company’s continued commitment to the Foundation, and our efforts to help all of funeral service in building meaningful relationships in the community.”

“This major gift is a way of showing our appreciation for the 70 years of impact the Funeral Service Foundation has had on our profession,” said Sumner “Jay” Waring III, SCI’s senior vice president of operations and immediate past chair of the Funeral Service Foundation.

SCI’s major gift directly supports the Foundation’s proactive efforts to seek relevant and innovative funding opportunities that enhance the funeral service profession, benefit funeral directors and allied professionals, thus making a timely impact on local communities.
