RESTORE. PRESERVE. EDUCATE. COMMUNITY.
RESTORE. PRESERVE. EDUCATE. COMMUNITY.
We ensure a safe home and dignified transition for those who have given themselves for scientific advancement or have been cremated. The "Ossuarians" actively seek out these specimens and cremains for rescue and strive to return all specimens to their intended usage or retire them with the dignity they deserve.
We will share our specimens with your school at no cost! Simply contact us and let us know you would like to have one of our specimens for your class and we will happily make the arrangements to deliver a specimen to your school for the day (or more if needed) provided it's something we have available at the time. We love Educational Staff and want your teaching opportunities to be the one ALL the students talk about!
We will collect any cremains and scatter them in "God's Country" at no cost for ANY funeral service provider, family member or individual who may have cremains. We collect all year and scatter them in the summer on our pilgrimage. We hold rescued cremains for 2 years so we can give families a chance to recover them free of charge. (See our CREMAINS link for a listing of cremains looking for their families.)
The Ossuary Inc. rescues ALL specimens from Schools, Laboratories, Museums, Medical Facilities and private collections. Our Directors and Trustees are Licensed Medical Professionals and Clergy. You can be assured your specimens are going to be handled by a qualified individual who will ensure a dignified transition while they are here for continued use or permanent retirement. We take animal specimens also! We believe no being should be wasted once becoming an educational tool.
We have a Clergy member who is State recognized in Delaware and will happily officiate your wedding for a small donation to the Organization. All donations are 100% tax deductible too! We believe in love and having someone affirm that for you legally shouldn't cost a fortune. We offer this service to anyone!
We love visitors! We will allow students, artists, educators, clubs and anyone else who may be curious to visit! Due to our real-life schedules and being a small organization, we do not allow "walk in" visitors. You MUST schedule a visit to enter the property please. There is no cost to visit, it's truly free of charge. We do appreciate your generosity though and have a box for donations if you would like to help us out with our endeavors here. We also accept all major cards and PayPal. It's all appreciated here as every bit helps us reach our goals!
We do NOT sell specimens of any kind for any reason. It's immoral and fully against organization policy and bylaws. Please do not ask. We are Ossuarians and we respect and revere those who have given themselves. They are not a product. However, if you must buy something....we do offer some really cool shirts and souvenirs for our visitors!
We believe in Community and do whatever we can to make that a better place. We participate in a wide range of activities from helping the Choose Joy Foundation ( www.choosejoyeveryday.org ) with clean ups after house fires to making public appearances at fund raisers and events with educational specimens. We even accept unexpired canned goods to distribute to those in need as a donation. If you would like to be involved, you're welcome to join us! Simply reach out to us or give a us a call. ALL ARE WELCOME!
