The AU Arboretum & Gardens provides unique naming opportunities to commemorate loved ones, events, and accomplishments through named benches and trees.
Staff will work with you closely to identify a meaningful location for your commemorative gift, which will be identified by a plaque. Donors may choose from existing trees and seating locations, or have their gift used for a new planting or bench. When naming an existing bench, your gift will be used to refurbish the item to like-new condition.
Your gift will enhance AU’s campus and become an essential and memorable part of the fabric of AU life.
