Donor Spotlight: Dignity Memorial®
The personal sacrifices made by members of the armed forces and their families cannot be taken for granted. We deeply appreciate those who have served our country with courage and selflessness, and Dignity Memorial® providers are honored to do our part in turn by caring for our military service members, veterans, and their families.
We are a team of dedicated, local funeral service professionals deeply rooted in our communities and committed to providing hope and healing during difficult times. That is why we are proud to announce our partnership with TAPS as a continuation of our promise to honor those who serve and comfort those who grieve.
“Dignity Memorial remains committed to supporting veterans who have helped to protect our freedom and have sacrificed so much for our country,” said Chief Operating Officer Jay Waring. “As a TAPS partner, we will continue to uphold our promise to honor all military service members and their families with the upmost dignity and compassion. Through this partnership, we hope to expand our opportunity to give back and work together to help survivors of military and veteran loss through their grief journey.”

Dignity Memorial will assist in enhancing the outreach and engagement of Survivor Services to newly bereaved military survivors by providing grief support materials connecting families with the TAPS Survivor Care Team. As partners in grief, our mission is the same –to provide comfort and compassion in the communities we serve. In addition to providing grief support, our associates are eager to participate in the many volunteer opportunities TAPS offers at survivor seminars, including military mentors for TAPS children and teenagers.
We may never know the sacrifices that were made by our nation’s veterans but it is our privilege to serve them and their families. Our partnership with TAPS is a vital initiative to give our service members and their loved ones the support they so deserve. It is with great pleasure and pride that we work with TAPS to honor our nation’s heroes who sacrifice so much to protect our freedom.
Dignity Memorial® supports the veteran community in a number of ways: through the Dignity Memorial® Homeless Veterans Burial Program which offers dignified funeral services with military honors at no cost to homeless or indigent veterans in partnership with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs; The We Honor Veterans program where we strive to meet the unique needs of veterans and their families in collaboration with local hospice organizations; and through our Veterans Associate Resource Community, an associate-led group dedicated to veteran wellness, leadership and advancement.
