Community Fund

Recompose is committed to bringing ecological death care to as many people as possible. This includes providing our services at a subsidized rate to individuals who could not otherwise afford to pay our full price of $5,500. We call this program the Recompose Community Fund.

About the Fund

Community Fund recipients receive the same care as any other Recompose customer. This includes:

  • the transformation of the body into soil,
  • the option to participate in a live-streamed laying-in ceremony facilitated by our staff,
  • the filing of the death certificate,
  • full support throughout the death care journey,
  • and transport to our facility from anywhere in King, Piece, and Snohomish County.

The Community Fund is supported by Recompose’s annual contribution of $30,000, speaking fees paid to Recompose staff, and contributions from other members of our community. Please note that contributions to the Community Fund are not tax deductible.

Apply Now

Recompose considers applications for Community Fund support either when a person is near death or at the time of death. Individuals can apply for the Community Fund themselves, or the application can be completed by a friend or family member, next of kin, social worker, death care supporter, or medical provider.

Land Acknowledgement

Recompose acknowledges we make our lives and livelihoods on the lands of the Coast Salish People, specifically the Duwamish People. We honor with gratitude the Duwamish People past and present, the land itself, and the Duwamish Tribe.

Colonization is an active, persistent process. Indigenous communities continue to be resilient in protecting their ecological and cultural lifeways and deathways despite ongoing oppression. Recompose respects, shares, and supports this commitment to climate healing and environmental justice. Join Recompose in contributing to Real Rent Duwamish.
