Bench Donation Program
A bench is the perfect way to honor someone, be it a relative, a friend or another individual or group who deserves recognition. It provides a public and lasting commemoration. For those remembering someone who has passed away it serves as a place of contemplation where friends and family can go to enjoy memories of the deceased.
A gift that makes a difference
Funds raised through the memorial bench program go directly to the Newburyport Parks Commission to maintain and improve Newburyport Parks. It's a meaningful way to make a lasting impression on the community by supporting city parks.
Adopt an existing bench, $1,000
A traditional, commemorative plaque will be placed on an existing bench in one of Newburyport's parks or public spaces. Your donation will also fund maintenance and improvements of city parks.
Purchase a new bench, $3,000
A new bench with a traditional plaque will be purchased and installed in your choice of available locations throughout Newburyport. This
option serves Newburyport Parks in two ways: it provides a new bench where one is needed; and funds maintenance and improvements to city parks.
