Indigent Burial and Funeral Fund

The Indigent Burial and Funeral Fund was established in 2007 by the City of St. Louis Circuit Court to help the CFO reimburse county or city governments to help cover the cost of indigent burials. The case settlement was split between three community foundations in the state, Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, Greater St. Louis Community Foundation and the Community Foundation of the Ozarks. Each community foundation serves a geographical area of the state; the CFO’s is 58 counties south of the Missouri river. Click here to learn more about the program and download a recommendation form.
