The Tree of Life is a beautiful tribute to an honored donor, friend or loved one.

$ 1,000 – $ 4,999 Bronze Leaf
$ 5,000 – $ 9,999 Silver Leaf
$10,000 – $24,999 Gold Leaf

At the base of the tree are foundation stones in the following gift categories.

$25,000 – $ 99,999 Bronze Stone
$100,000 – $ 249,999 Silver Stone
