Memorial and Tribute Gifts

What better way to pay lasting tribute to a loved one or honor a milestone in your family's life than to make a memorial or tribute gift to the Friends of the Parks? Depending upon the size of your gift, you may donate a tree or a bench in honor of your loved one. We will acknowledge your contribution to a family member, although the amount will remain confidential. Please contact the Friends’ office to discuss the options available to you.

Friends' honorary and memorial gift cards are also available on-line.

A Gift That Lasts….

Deep Cut Gardens Commemorative Tree

Deep Cut Gardens Commemorative Tree

The Friends of the Parks offers another way to honor or memorialize a loved one by purchasing a “Leaf” for the Deep Cut Gardens Commemorative Tree.  Leaves are available for $100.  Donations can be given in honor of or in memory of an individual, or as a generous donation to the parks.  The Commemorative Tree is a specially designed oak sculpture offering recognition to donors whose thoughtful generosity helps advance the development and beautification of Deep Cut Gardens.  Please contact the Friends’ office to request a brochure/form for the Commemorative Tree.

Bench Donation Program

Launched in 2004, the formalized Bench Donation Program enables individuals and families to create a lasting tribute within the Park System to designated loved ones.
