Financial Aid

St. Joseph Funeral Fund

The St. Joseph Funeral Fund is a crowd funding platform, designed to raise money for funeral related expenses through the collective effort of friends, family and communities. This approach taps into the collective efforts of a large pool of individuals, primarily online via social media and reaches out to their networks for greater reach and exposure. The St. Joseph Funeral fund gives you a social platform to share your story, promote your fundraising efforts and provide you with options for collecting donations. Everyone can see who has or hasn't donated. You can also see how much they donated. Our platform enables users to be more engaged in your fundraising campaign.

There is no charge to set up a funeral fundraising page and unlike every other crowd funding site there are no fees associated with the St. Joseph Funeral Fund. This means that 100% of funds raised will go to offset the funeral and other related expenses. It's one of the easiest and most helpful ways to support a family member or friend during those difficult times while planning a funeral.

Sometimes families are not financially prepared for the expenses related to the death of a loved one, especially when it is unexpected. So who do you turn to for help in covering these expenses? Many people are turning to the help of others in covering these costs by setting up a campaign with The Funeral Fund.

The St. Joseph Funeral Fund will help you set up a campaign in the name and memory of your loved one and that will allow others to contribute funds to help cover the expenses of a funeral, memorial, even medical expenses or extra financial help to the surviving family members. The funds are for whatever you need it for.

Once your campaign page is set up, let people know by contacting friends, family and loved ones through email, social networks and local organizations you know or belong to, such as your church. Ask your contacts to share the link to your funeral fund to help you reach your goal with the memorial donations you need.

There’s no greater loss than the loss of a loved one. The emotional strain of dealing with the loss is difficult enough, but to have to add to it the stress and worry of covering the expenses related to a death can be overwhelming. That is why we want you to be focused on the “Healing Process” and let us help you with regard to finances.

In addition to the St. Joseph Funeral Fund, additional assistance is available through the Grief Care Fund. When families utilize the St. Joseph Funeral Fund, the Grief Care Fund offered by Meierhoffer Funeral Home & Crematory always makes the first contribution to the family’s efforts to seek financial assistance. The St. Joseph Funeral Fund and the Grief Care Fund are offered exclusively by Meierhoffer Funeral Home & Crematory.
