Tree of Hope

Thanking our generous campaign donors

Tree of Hope

Children, families, volunteers and other visitors to The Dougy Center pass under the Tree of Hope as they move from the living room to the play areas and meeting rooms for the children and teens.

The leaves recognize donors who gave $10,000 or more to the campaign, with larger leaves for those who gave $25,000 or more. The trunk, roots and branches recognize top campaign givers who contributed $50,000 or more.

The Tree of Hope is still growing! Donations and pledges of $10,000 or more during January 2013 to June 2014 will help The Dougy Center expand programs and services. New leaves, branches and roots will recognize these generous and much needed contributions supporting bereaved children and families.
