Connecting with the Future
Purchasing a tribute bench allows you to honor those of your choosing in a meaningful way, and your generosity will add yet another amenity that will enhance the visitor experience at the Jacksonville Arboretum & Gardens for years to come.
A bench placed in our commemorative path becomes a tangible part of the Jacksonville Arboretum & Garden’s journey into the future.
- A volunteer installer will have the bench in place four-to-six weeks after the order is made.
- The Arboretum has determined the life of the tribute bench to be ten years and will maintain the bench as necessary over that time period.
- Your bench donation is 100 percent tax deductible.
- Acknowledgment letters will be sent to the donor and the honoree or their family.
Honorees are recognized by name with a custom 2-by-8-inch brass plate embedded on the bench. Each Tribute Bench plaque has a standard of two lines, up to 25 characters per line, which includes spaces. A third line of text can be added for an additional $2.
Two styles of benches are being installed:
- Each slab style bench is $1500.
- Each bench with arms and back is $2000.
If you do not wish to buy a bench at this time, but would like to make a tax-deductible gift to the Jacksonville Arboretum & Gardens. Please visit our donations page.
