Memorial and Commemorative Donations

Hagley Museum and Library also offers a memorial and commemorative recognition program. Honor a loved one with a bench or tree on our scenic property, or adopt-a-book in support of Hagley’s library collections.

Bench-$1500 – Your donation provides for a four-foot wooden bench with a naming plaque. We will be pleased to discuss locations of the property where benches might be sited.  

Tree-$1000 – Help add to our historic landscape of ninety-four species and varieties of trees with your memorial or commemorative tree. Once planted, Hagley will install a plaque recognizing your donation. This process may take more than six weeks, depending on weather and time of year.

For more information, please contact Andrew Engel, Director of Development at (302) 658-2400 ext. 329 or
