Memorials and Donations

Contributions to the City of Powell River’s Parks Donation program offers a variety of opportunities for citizens to participate in the enhancement of community spaces.

The donation program allows you to honor one or more persons or an organization for the past or present contributions to the community, to a service club project, or in memory of a loved one. Celebrate friends, family and important events with a custom bronze plaque on a park bench, picnic table or drinking fountains. Trees and shrubs are also popular items that may be donated.

What Can I donate?
Our preference is to receive the funds directly so that the City can purchase the item you have requested. If you are unsure about the item you wish to donate, please call us, or submit your request and a representative from the City will contact you to arrange a time to meet to discuss your gift, its location, etc… Payment is due upon confirmation of your order.

What’s included?
Your donation includes the item chose, labor for installation, and a bronze donor plaque. The plaque will be countersunk into the top slate of a bench, measuring 7cm x 36cm in size and can include up to three lines of text.

Donation Policy
Donations or gifts of money to the City are accepted with the explicit approval of the Chief Administrative Officer and the applicable Department Head or their designate.

Donations of gifts or money to the City are not accepted where conditions are attached to the donation which would create an unacceptable obligation for the City, or where unacceptably high operating or maintenance expenditures would result.

Tax receipts will be issued where the gift directly benefits the City. The receipt will be issued for the amount of money donated or for the fair market value of the gift at the time it is presented.

Some of the most popular gifts include:

Park Bench $3000
