Sponsor a bench

The Royal Roads University Commemorative Bench Program provides a meaningful way for individuals and community members to recognize milestones, celebrate events, or honour loved ones while enhancing Royal Roads’ gardens and grounds.

For a donation of $5000, a commemorative plaque will be installed on a new or refurbished bench within RRU’s gardens for a period of 10 years. After 10 years, the donor has the option to renew their donation for an additional decade of care and commemoration. During the 10-year period, Royal Roads will ensure basic maintenance of the bench. Note: the bench style is specific to its location in the gardens and each bench has a plaque with room for a brief inscription.

Contributions to the RRU Commemorative Bench Program are fully tax-deductible, and payment can be made by credit card or cheque.
