Bench Adoption Cost – $1,500

  • A new bench with a traditional plaque will be purchased and installed in your choice of available locations throughout the Apple Canyon Lake properties. This total includes the bench, installation, commemorative plaque, and 10 years of maintenance.
  • Benches are installed at approved sites in the order requests are received.
  • Installation depends on the time of year received and the number of preceding orders.
  • Choose the specific location for your bench donation from the map of locations, however, the bench's exact location will be determined by ACLPOA staff based on the needs of the Association.
  • The Association will order and install the bench at the location of your choice.
  • Once the bench is installed, the contact person will receive a letter notifying them that the bench has been placed, and a map showing the location of the bench. If the donor wishes, a card of acknowledgment will be sent to the recipient's family advising that their loved one has been honored or commemorated in this special way.
  • A donation period will last 10 years. Within this time, ACLPOA will replace the bench, in the event of damage, at no cost to the donor.
  • After 10 years, the bench will be available for renewal for the cost of a new donation, with the first right of refusal given to the original donor. If the original donor opts not to renew, the donated bench and plaque may be removed or rededicated at any time.
  • Guidelines for donation, memorial, and sponsorship contributions are available from the ACL Office or via email upon request.
