Recompose Community Fund

The Recompose Community Fund helps provide human composting to individuals who couldn’t otherwise afford the full price of the service.

Everyone Deserves a Green Funeral

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. This includes:

  • The transformation into soil
  • Personalized support from our Services Team
  • An obituary on our website
  • Transport of the body to our Seattle location from King, Pierce, or Snohomish County, or to a future Recompose location if the body is within 30 miles
  • Sheltering of the body, including cooled storage if necessary
  • Legal funeral documents, including the filing of the death certificate if the death occurred in Washington or a state with a then-current Recompose location

The Community Fund is supported by 100% of the profits from the Recompose shop, speaking fees paid to Recompose staff, and contributions from members of our community.

Contribute to the Fund

We created the Recompose Shop as a way for individuals contribute to the Community Fund. Purchase gifts and gear to help spark conversations about human composting or skip the merch and become a fund sponsor instead. 100% of profits from all purchases go to our Community Fund. 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.
