SkyRose Chapel Foundation

SkyRose Chapel Foundation was established by Rose Hills in 1997 as a meaningful way to support local, non-profit organizations within the communities that it serves.


The Foundation is supported with donations collected at Rose Hills’ community events, a percentage of SkyRose Chapel’s funeral usage fees, payment for select filming projects within Rose Hills Memorial Park and private donations. All Foundation administration fees are covered by Rose Hills, as well.
