Support Historic Greenwood Cemetery

Maintaining and restoring Historic Greenwood Cemetery is no small task. It takes an army of volunteers and dedicated association members thousands of hours each year just keep up with mowing, trimming, and road maintenance in Greenwood's 32 expansive acres.

Your donation helps us purchase and maintain equipment and it also allows us to pay for debris removal, tree trimming and removal, and so much more. Every little bit helps. Please consider giving to Historic Greenwood Cemetery on this year's GiveSTLDay.

Historic Greenwood Cemetery  was organized in 1874 to serve the needs of the growing black population of post-civil war St. Louis and St. Louis County. It was the first commercial non-sectarian cemetery for African Americans in the St Louis metropolitan area.

Help us preserve and restore these hallowed grounds so that we can properly honor the more than 50,000 Africans Americans are buried within Greenwood’s 32 acres. Join us in making a difference and help us preserve St. Louis' Black History.
