Giving to McMaster

Benches and trees

Information Box Group

Plant a tree

We work closely with you and the McMaster Grounds Department to select an appropriate campus location and tree species. We dedicate your tree with a handsome 10×12 inch bronze cast plaque. The tree is guaranteed for three years. Costs begin at $750.

Dedicate an existing tree

The McMaster Grounds Department will identify potential trees for dedication. Your tree is marked with a 3×5 inch aluminum cast plaque. There is no lifetime guarantee on these dedicated trees. The cost to plaque an existing tree on campus is $500.

Dedicate a bench

We work with you and the Grounds Department to determine the best location for the dedicated bench which will include a commemorative plaque. The cost to install a new bench on campus is $3,500.

Donate in memory

Remember or honour a colleague, friend, or loved-one with an In Memory or In Tribute gift. When you donate In Memory, McMaster will inform the family of your contribution in their loved-one’s name. The In Tribute program allows you to recognize a special occasion, such as a birthday, promotion, anniversary, or retirement. Individuals will be sent a card informing them that a gift to McMaster University has been made in their honour.
