Allerton’s Memorial & Dedicatory Gift Program offers individuals the opportunity to recognize or remember a loved one, celebrate life’s achievements and milestones, or thank a special friend.
Peony » $100
The peony garden, restored in 2005, showcases 68 varieties of peony blooms, from the softest pink to the deepest red. Your donation will ensure the long-term maintenance of this loved garden. Small stands line the sidewalk at the front of each row of peonies. The stands, updated before the bloom each spring, display your personal message (65 characters or less) commemorating your donation. Find a list of available varieties here. To make a gift, visit here and enter $100 in the “Dedicatory Fund” box near the bottom of the page.
Bench » $2,500 (log) / $5,000 (concrete)
Dedicating a bench at the Garden is an extraordinary opportunity to honor a loved one, offering a quiet resting place to enjoy the beauty of Allerton. A plaque inscribed with the wording of your choice will be affixed, and your bench is guaranteed for a minimum of five years (log) or twenty years (concrete). Due to existing benches or long-range plans that would displace your bench, some sites are not appropriate for placement. Allerton staff is happy to recommend sites where benches are needed. To make a gift, visit here and enter the appropriate amount in the “Dedicatory Fund” box near the bottom of the page.
