The Season of Giving is here: Help build the 9/11 Memorial

The holidays are fast approaching. Share the gift of history by sponsoring a memorial cobblestone, which will  line the paths of the 9/11 Memorial’s plaza at the World Trade Center site – eight beautiful landscaped acres that will include two massive reflecting pools and more than 400 oak trees.

Cobblestones can be sponsored for $100 (plaza cobblestones) or $500 (glade cobblestones, which are located in a beautiful clearing that will be used for special ceremonies and gatherings).

Out of respect for the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 and Feb. 26, 1993 attacks, cobblestones will not be inscribed with donor names. Electronic kiosks will be located on the plaza so donors can locate a sponsored cobblestone.

Place your order by Dec. 21 to receive your special holiday gift card. Cobblestones will be for available for sponsorship after the holidays and make meaningful gifts year round.
