Memorial courtyard donations and tributes

The Memorial Courtyard is a focal point for donors who wish to pay tribute to a deceased member of the Binghamton University community. Memorials are limited to people who had a relationship with the University.

  • Gifts of $500 or more recognize the donor, who may honor a deceased member of the University community on the donor recognition display at the courtyard entrance.
  • Gifts of $1,000 or more allow the donor to have the name of the deceased member of the University community inscribed on a bronze plaque and affixed to the memorial display in the courtyard.
  • Gifts of $2,500 or more enable the donor to honor the deceased member of the University community with a tree and plaque within the courtyard, space permitting.
  • Gifts of $5,000 or more provide for a bench and plaque within the courtyard, space permitting.

Financial contributions to support the Memorial Courtyard are placed in a special fund dedicated to the construction and maintenance of the courtyard. Gifts of any size are appreciated. Gifts of materials and landscape plantings are also welcome.
