Bench Sponsorship

The Schuylkill Banks Adopt-a-Bench program offers you the opportunity to honor someone special, commemorate an occasion, or establish a memorial. Your bench adoption includes:

  • One engraved 4" x 6" stainless steel plaque mounted on the back of an existing bench along Schuylkill Banks (trail south of the pergola at MLK Jr Drive). You can select any bench you want as long as it is available and suitable.

  • Plaques can support up to five lines of text (approximately 16 words). SRDC will work with you on layout and reserves the right to approve all text, which must be suitable for a public venue. Line art graphics, such as logos, can be included as space permits.

  • A certificate authenticating your bench sponsorship.

  • Maintenance of the plaque is guaranteed for a period of seven years. SRDC will clean, repair, or replace any plaques that need servicing during this period. Following this period, the plaque will remain on the bench but repair/replacement is not guaranteed.

  • Four complimentary tickets to Secrets of the Schuylkill riverboat tour ($100 value). Reservations required.

Bench sponsorships are offered at $2,000 per bench. Please call 215-309-5523 x100 or email [email protected] for more information.

Corporate Contributions & Sponsorships

SRDC relies on the generosity of corporations, institutions, and foundations to support its operating budget. These contributions are vital for supporting essential tasks such as trail maintenance and paying our lean but mighty team of staff and contractors who are working to expand and improve Schuylkill Banks. Corporate sponsorships are also available to help support Schuylkill Banks public programming, which includes riverboat tours, kayak tours, movie nights, and volunteer cleanup events.
