In 1969, the Canaan Baptist Cemetery Association was formed to provide perpetual care for the cemetery. Money was accepted from interested parties, and the church's farmland was sold in order to place a sufficient amount of money in a trust fund. Donations are still taken as memorials.
The current treasurer for the Canaan Baptist Cemetery Association is Donna Grimestad. Her address is P.O. Box 664, Hewitt, TX 76643
