    Dancing Chimes Plaza Pavers

    Our dancing chimes plaza pavers (12 x 12) are a lasting tribute to a loved one. The pavers are placed around the Supple Courtyard in the CoHorts’ Dancing Chimes Plaza. A personalized message can be engraved but words are limited by paver size. For an additional gift of $350, you may receive a duplicate copy of your paver to take home with you. Because these pavers are individually crafted they require ample time for artisans to create, receive final approval from the family and then be kiln-fired. This process often takes several months to complete. 

    Please mail your completed form to Reiman Gardens and include, “Attention: Membership Specialist” on the envelope. You may also bring your completed form to the front desk to drop it off. Please contact the Membership Specialist with any questions here.

    Minimum gift for a paver is $1,500

    Memorial Garden Benches

    A memorial garden bench allows guests to reflect and enjoy the lovely surroundings. Tributes are attached to a plaque that remains on the bench for a minimum of ten years. After ten years, the family has the option of commemorating a new bench at the future price (inflation and other circumstances may change the size of gift) or the plaque may be returned to the family. The plaque measures 3” x 4.” Please note: The process for ordering and installing the bench plaque (from start to finish) can take a few weeks to complete.

    Minimum gift to commemorate a bench is $5,000 (for ten years).

    Named Endowed Fund

    A “Named Endowed Fund” is often created by individuals or families to honor a loved one or their family. Once the fund is created, all subsequent gifts may be added to it in future years. The fund may be specified to support a particular program, garden area or remain unrestricted. If the fund is used to finance a garden project, the amount necessary includes the cost of the project plus the amount needed to endow that project. Endowment amounts will vary according to complexity of the project and can be determined prior to establishing the fund. 

    Minimum gift to create a named fund is $50,000 (payable outright or over five years).
