A Co-op Venture
Service with Dignity, Integrity, and Care
Membership at Birchwood is your opportunity to take some measure of control of:
- Funeral Costs
- Uncertainties and fears related to your personal funeral arrangements
Here’s how it works
A person becomes a member of the Co-op by purchasing 200 (or more) common shares at $1.00 each – that’s $200.00 (or more). Please note that there is a waiting period of six (6) months for full benefits to apply. The full amount of the shares will be refunded should you pass away prior to end of the six month waiting period.
This entitles the person:
- To voting rights
- To elect the board of directors
- To help decide major issues, etc.
- To a refund of your $200.00 (or more) at your funeral.
- To a discount from the general public’s fair market price for your funeral.
- To an accumulated discount based on accrued profits – credited to your funeral (or estate).
- To the peace of mind that comes to an individual and their significant others from knowing they have taken some measure of control of their final hour.
