Matthews Children's Foundation

Helweg & Rowland is proud to participate in a grant program with the Matthews Children's Foundation, a national organization affiliated with the Matthews International Corporation casket division that is dedicated to supporting non-profits that serve children and children's causes.  Established in 1992, the Matthews Children's Foundation has donated more that $3.6 million to children's charities across the country.  Each quarter, local charities are nominated by funeral directors and grants are issued by the Foundation's Board of Trustees.

With the purchase of a Matthews casket at Helweg & Rowland, a donation is made to the Matthews Children's Foundation in the name of the deceased.  The Matthews Children's Foundation then awards grants to non-profit organizations whose sole purpose is to support children.  To be eligible for a grant, a charity must be a 501(c)-3 organization and must be committed to serving children's needs.
