New York State Funeral Directors Association

The NYS Tribute Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, was established in 2003 out of a desire to unite the knowledge and resources of funeral service professionals throughout New York State.

The Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting education, outreach and research programs that advance the public's understanding of end-of-life issues.

The Foundation uses its philanthropic resources to stimulate research, improve and support professional education, increase public outreach, and sponsor forums to foster policy dialogue on important end-of-life issues.
