Funeral Service Foundation Announces Service Corporation International $50,000 Major Gift
Brookfield, Wis. – For the third consecutive year, the Funeral Service Foundation announced, with gratitude, Service Corporation International’s (SCI) $50,000 major gift. The gift meets the shared commitments of both the Foundation and SCI to support funeral service in building meaningful relationships with the families and the communities it serves.
“Our valued partnership is more than just a financial contribution to Foundation,” said Sumner “Jay” Waring III, SCI’s senior vice president of operations and past chair of the Funeral Service Foundation. “We believe in the Foundation’s efforts to support funeral service professionals throughout every stage of their career.”
Foundation Immediate Past President, Gerard “Jerry” Schoen III recognized the contribution during the Foundation’s annual donor appreciation reception in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on October 24, which was held in conjunction with the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) International Convention & Expo. “Since 1945, the Foundation has made a noteworthy impact on funeral service,” said Schoen to the more than 300 Foundation supporters in attendance. “SCI’s generosity and continued support provides a framework that allows us to meet the needs of our profession today, and into the future.”
SCI’s major gift directly supports the Foundation’s mission-focused efforts to fuel the careers of funeral service professionals through scholarships, professional development, outreach, and tools and resources, and fund and promote initiatives and outreach that make a measurable impact on funeral service.
