Tribute Dedication Gifts
The Allen Centennial Garden can help you celebrate, commemorate, and remember with distinctive dedication opportunities throughout the Garden landscape.
Please contact Jodi Wickham at the UW Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608.206.6058 with questions or for a listing of available tribute opportunities. Upon receipt of your donation, a UW Foundation representative will contact you to confirm your dedication and assist you in the selection and completion of the tribute. When the dedication is in place, a personalized acknowledgement of your tribute gift will be sent to the recipient of your choice, without reference to the size of the donation.
All tribute opportunities are subject to change and availability.
A plaque inscribed with the personalized dedication will be placed on the lower right-hand corner of the bench seat. Benches may be dedicated for the life of the bench (7–10 years) or endowed in perpetuity.
Specimen trees are long-lived varieties that, over time, will become the anchors of the Garden experience. The chosen tree will be dedicated with a tree tag marking the personalized dedication. The tree will remain dedicated for the life of the plant.
Each year the Allen Centennial Garden plants dozens of stunning pots and containers. Containers are dedicated as a grouping for maximum impact. Dedication remains in place for a single season (May–October).
Honor a loved one for a birthday, new baby, wedding proposal, or anniversary with a special message in the Garden. Special signage will "sponsor" your message for a one-week period in the garden of your choice.
The Allen Centennial Garden is funded entirely with private gifts. A variety of permanent named opportunities are available for individuals who chose to pay tribute to their relationship with the University or to honor and recognize someone special in their lives. For inquiries about making a contribution to the Gardens or to name a garden, contact Jodi Wickham.
You also may make a donation through the University of Wisconsin Foundation's secure website.
