Give a tribute that gives back.
Honor the special people, events, or milestones in your life with the gift of Governors Island. Adopting a bench, tree, hammock, or Adirondack chair is a meaningful tribute that leaves a long lasting impact on Governors Island’s 172 acres of lush green space.
To adopt a piece of Governors Island, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Adopting a Tree
Tree sponsorships are available for a donation of $5,000. If you adopt a tree, your name will be added to a tree sponsor plaque in the growing urban forest in Hammock Grove. Note that specific trees on the Island cannot be selected.
Our Adirondack chairs are spread throughout the Island so visitors can sit back and take a moment to relax any time during their visit, and they are frequently moved around by visitors and Island staff. Benches and hammocks are more stationary options. If you wish to fundraise for your adoption, we can set up a personal fundraising page that you can distribute to your network.
