AGS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our mission is to foster appreciation of the cultural significance of gravestones and burial grounds through their study and preservation.
Chapters expand public awareness and support for the research, preservation and conservation of grave markers and places of burial. The main purpose of state or regional chapters is to work as local extensions of the national AGS and to be able to offer meeting and workshop opportunities at the local level.
