Dedicate A Bench
Dedicate a bench in Fish Creek and leave a lasting legacy!
These dedication benches, of standard design, are 6 feet wide (see photo above), solidly constructed of a brown-coated steel and cedar on a concrete footing. A bronze plaque, with text of your choosing, will be secured to the bench, and will remain the property of the donor after a ten-year period.
There are more than 100 scenic locations throughout Fish Creek for these beautiful benches and only 10 – 12 benches are up for renewal each year.
For more information, please click on the Overview Sheet or the Dedication Bench Form or contact Nic DeGama-Blanchet, Executive Director, at or call 403 -238-3841.
Once we receive this form and your deposit, we will arrange for you to view available benches, and choose your preferred location among those available. If you do not find a suitable location for your bench, we will refund your $500 deposit in full. Once you have found a bench location that works for you, we require a final $4,500 payment and a contract to be signed before the plaque is ordered and the bench and plaque installed. Once the full payment is received, we will issue a tax receipt to you for the full donation amount of $5000
Your Memorial Bench comes with an engraved bronze plaque. Ordering the plaque at this time is optional. You may prefer to wait until you choose your bench location and sign a contract. Ordering a plaque takes 6 to 8 weeks, so alternatively, you may wish to place your plaque order at this time, depending on when you want the bench and plaque installed. (If you order the plaque at this time and then decide not to go ahead with the bench donation, the cost of the plaque plus an administration fee ,a total of $250, will be subtracted from your deposit.) A plaque inscription can be no more than 4 lines, with a maximum of 30 characters/spaces per line.
