Scientific Body Donation
No Cost Direct Crematio

Horizon Funeral Care facilitates donation for research and education with local accredited tissue banks who provide anatomical tissue to medical researchers and institutions of higher learning to advance scientific understanding and to train medical professionals. In the event the research tissue donation is consented to by the legal next of kin and facilitated by Horizon Funeral Care, the subsequent direct cremation services are provided at no cost to the family of the donor, typically adding only a few days to the timeframe for direct cremation. If a donation to save lives and advance medical research fits with your family’s ideals and approach to funeral care give us a call  or click below so we can answer your questions.
