Preserving the Past. Influencing the Future.
Woodlawn Conservancy, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization charged with preserving the historic mausolea, monuments, landscape features and great trees that comprise The National Historic Landmark Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx. The mission of the Conservancy is to enhance Woodlawn Cemetery as a natural, educational, and cultural landmark, to create a superior visitor experience and to build a community of supporters dedicated to preserving The Woodlawn Cemetery for the enjoyment of present and future generations.
The Conservancy also provides public and educational programs, tours and events that interpret the objects under Woodlawn’s care and illuminate the celebrated lives of those interred here.
The mission of the Conservancy is accomplished by providing educational programs for students and the public, engaging a strong volunteer corps and working to present the extraordinary collection of monuments and plantings found on the 400-acre site. This mission is only accomplished through the support of individuals and organizations who value our National Landmark status, and desire to preserve Woodlawn’s beauty and history for the enjoyment of future generations.
