If the landsmanshaften is still active, the papers would still be with the society's contact.  Check with the cemetery where the society has a plot for a contact.  Sometimes the contact can be very helpful.

Check the Yivo online for to see if the contents of the society are listed.  Some society's folders contain as little as a single piece of paper.  In this case, it was the form that members completed to indicate what money they were submitting should be applied against.  The society I'm referencing is not currently listed on Yivo's search.
