Funeral Expenses

The cost of a funeral and burial may cause an immediate financial emergency when a family does not have the funds or insurance to cover the expenses. Binc understands the impact of losing a loved one and provides grants to pay the basic funeral and burial expenses of an immediate family member*. While beliefs and traditions regarding funerals and burials vary widely; the Foundation will be sensitive to these beliefs and traditions while also balancing overall assistance.

Considered expenses include:

  • Transportation of the deceased from the death site to the funeral service site
  • Embalming or burial preparation of the deceased
  • A casket or urn
  • Basic services of the funeral home, staff, and/or clergy
  • Burial – basic expenses

*Immediate family member is defined as spouse, same-sex domestic partner, child, stepchild, mother, father or the bookseller them-self.
