Commemorative Gifts

Members of the community wishing to honor loved ones in a meaningful and lasting way have two wonderful and unique options.

Those wishing to honor a deceased friend, family member or colleague may purchase a leaf for the Remembrance Tree at the north end of Hudson Hall. Leaves are inscribed “In Memory of” with the person’s name and year of passing. Funds raised will support Foundation initiatives, including student scholarships.

A gold leaf is $1,000, a silver leaf is $500 and a bronze leaf is $250. Leaves may be ordered online by clicking on the Make a Gift link. When completing the form online, please select “Other” and enter the name of the person you wish to memorialize, along with his or her date of passing, under “About Your Gift.” Leaves may also be purchased by sending a check made payable to the Dutchess Community College Foundation, 53 Pendell Road, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601.

Additionally, inscribed bricks can be purchased for placement in the Petrovits Pine Grove Patio in front of Bowne Hall.

For more information about either option, call (845) 431-8400 or email
