The Dora Cemetery is a private, non-profit pioneer cemetery managed solely by volunteers. We receive no regular funding from the local, state, or federal governments, nor is significant grant funding available to defray our maintenance and administrative costs. Will you make a donation toward the real costs of maintaining our special place? See upcoming and completed projects below.
