Phaneuf Family Foundation

The Phaneuf Family Foundation provides financial support that allows families to afford a respectful funeral or cremation for a loved one. Their mission arose from the growing need of families who cannot afford to finalize the costs associated with a cremation or burial, and have no other recourse.

The foundation’s maximum distribution amount to any one request by a family, organization or student will not exceed $1,000. Donations are eligible for deceased residents of the states of New Hampshire and Vermont, and the donations can be used to cover funeral- or cremation-related costs, ranging from a transportation fee to a complete cremation.

Requests for distributions for a cremation or funeral may be made by a family member, friend, funeral director, social worker, hospice or nursing home employee or other interested party.
