Memorial trees and benches

Commemorate a loved one on the Oregon State University campus

Installing a bench or planting a tree is a meaningful way to memorialize and honor the lives of friends, relatives and members of the OSU community. You can also choose to make landscape enhancements that add to the beauty and vitality of OSU locations, such as the Corvallis campus, OSU-Cascades or the Hatfield Marine Science Center. In doing so, you can make a mark on the university for years to come and create a special setting for future memories to be made. 


The OSU Foundation, in partnership with the university, offers the opportunity for you to establish a physical tribute to a loved one: simply contact a member of the stewardship staff at the OSU Foundation to make your gift and coordinate your intentions:
