Donations to the Roslyn Cemetery Beneficial Association may be directed to either of two support opportunities:

  • Project Fund that supports ongoing cemetery renovation. Donations go to this fund unless otherwise specified.
  • the David Browitt Memorial Fund, an endowed account providing long-term support for cemetery preservation.

RCBA serves to:

  • fund cemetery renovation,
  • advocate for the cemetery,
  • provide educational resources for the community, and
  • access resources for cemetery preservation.

RCBA has supported numerous projects since its inception. Here are some examples:

  • In 2010, the RCBA applied for and received a Humanities Washington Award recognizing the contributions of Dick Watts for his work to restore, protect, and promote the importance of Roslyn’s historic cemeteries.
  • Organized a Blessing of Cemetery Mass followed by a community Memorial Day Picnic.
  • Contributed funds in 2011 to repair fencing in the Serbian Cemetery.
  • Conducted historical cemetery walking tours for area school groups, international student groups, and visiting dignitaries (2011-2018).
  • Facilitated a 2015 presentation by the Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation on preserving our cemeteries.
  • Established a managed account with the City of Roslyn to support new project initiatives.
  • Contributed funds in 2018 to acquire cemetery properties for the City of Roslyn.
