COMMUNITY SUPPORTER PRICING
Community Supporter Burial - $3850

Community Supporter Donor $700/ $1000
White Eagle is part of Sacred Earth Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit organization, and donations are tax-deductible. We encourage people to “pay it forward” and donate to an additional Community Supported Burial Fee ($700), or a Local Need Boost ($1000) to benefit others who may not have the financial resources to pay for a loved one’s burial. Our region is rural and the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are hitting our community hard. This is a way to help ensure equitable access to natural burial, and a way to help.
White Eagle Sites
$3000 baseline cost for each 20×20 site commitment.
We encourage folks to pre-plan, to buy sites ahead of time and to make sure your family and caregivers have copies of the “Certificate of Interment Rights” which you receive with your purchase.
+$300 Endowment Care Fund – ensures ongoing land care as governed by State of Washington.
+$700 Burial fee, payable in advance or at time of burial.
Total Cost: $3300/$4000
White Eagle site purchases are not refundable, but the Interment Rights may be gifted, transferred, or sold.
They are considered goods and services by the IRS, and are therefore not tax-deductible.
Donations made to our Conservation Fund or Ekone Camp Scholarship Fund are tax-deductible.
We require a $500 deposit to confirm your site commitment, and can work with quarterly or monthly payment schedules, at no interest, for up to 3 years.
While we are happy to accept credit/debit cards for your convenience, we charge a 2% fee to cover the costs of card payment processing.
What is included in Open & Close Burial Fee?
We currently charge a $700 Open & Close fee for the actual burial. This includes digging the grave (usually done by hand), grave preparation (the bottom of the grave is beautifully prepared using native plant and flower material found locally during the season), burial service, reception space and hosting. The Open & Close Burial Fee is not due until the time of burial, but we can accept advance payment as well. If you pay for the Burial Fee in advance, we hold those monies in a trust until the time of burial. We reserve the right to adjust the Burial fee in the future, but advance payment secures your burial at current rates.
