Your gift of a tree or bench for the University of Wyoming campus enhances the beauty and versatility of the UW grounds, and is a living and lasting tribute to you as the donor and to the one you honor through your gift.
This is a particularly meaningful way to honor a graduating student or pay tribute to a favorite professor. It's also a way to leave a little piece of yourself with your alma mater, or to memorialize someone special in your life or the life of the university. It even makes a distinctive anniversary or birthday gift for those who hold UW dear.
Each tree is guaranteed and will be maintained for up to five years. Choose between deciduous trees with two-inch trunks or coniferous trees measuring six feet in height for $2,000 each.
A Victorian-style park bench, six feet long and made of cast iron and a tough, wood-grained, recycled plastic, has a distinctive look and extra durability to withstand heavy use and the Wyoming weather. The benches cost $7,000 each and will be permanently installed and maintained by UW staff.
Each of these commemorative gifts will be accompanied by a cast bronze plaque bearing your name as the donor and, where applicable, the name of the individual(s) to be honored or remembered.
Kristin Morrison, Associate Director of Stewardship
