NESBITT CEMETERY

  Double the Trust Fund by 2004

   

The Internal Revenue Service officially recognized Nesbitt Cemetery Association, Inc. as a Section 501 (c) (13) tax exempt organization on November 1, 2002.  This has been a long process but necessary for the perpetual maintenance of the Nesbitt Cemetery.  The letter of approval states, “Under the provision of Section 170 of the Code, donors may deduct contributions to you.”  Please provide your tax accountant the following numbers:                                                                                   

EIN 75-2081270   
DLN 402262080

Many of you have been faithful contributors to the best of your ability.  But we must be honest and recognize the reality of our funds.  The Trust Fund is painfully inadequate to sustain the cemetery.  The trust manager has been very cooperative to maintain the fund as economically as possible but has emphasized, we are the smallest fund under their management.

The market value of the Trust Fund as of January 1, 2003 was $41,337.44.  The total amount added to the Trust Fund by contributions in 2002 was $935.00.  Because the fund is small, a large percentage of the earning are used to pay the fund manager.  Our objective is to increase the fund to an amount that would generate earnings in a volume large enough to compound the value at a greater rate.  

We must work to enlarge the Trust Fund with larger contributions.  The goal is to double the Trust Fund by January 1, 2004.  Please consider donations in an amount commemorative of your love for relatives and friends in the Nesbitt Cemetery and your personal ability to contribute.
