The Cryonics Institute is a non-profit organization offering cryopreservation to its clients. This involves storing the deceased in liquid nitrogen and maintaining it in cryostasis, in the hope of thawing the subject in a future world where today's fatal maladies have been cured.

Doing this through the Cryonics Institute isn't cheap. It's subject to a lifetime membership fee of $1,250 and a $28,000 charge for the actual cryopreservation. There is also an $88,000 fee in the event that the subject needs to be transported.
