Bergen Designs has been serving the needs of Elementary, Middle and High Schools along with College and Universities since 1999, providing beautiful natural stone memorial benches for Campus Donor Recognition Bench Programs along with many giving programs that raise funds for memorial benches. Our commemorative benches will beautify your landscape while allowing the school to pay tribute to those individuals with a personalized inscription or a donor recognition plaque added onto it.
Colleges and Schools nationwide have used our memorial benches in a variety of ways:
  • Honor the Contribution of Individuals
  • Alumni Memories
  • Student/Teacher Memorials
  • Fundraising Capital Campaigns for landscape beautification programs.
  • Family Foundations and Non Profits to enhance community gardens
Our benches require little or no maintenance and can be engraved with an inscription. We ship anywhere in the Continental U.S. and assembly takes less than one hour to complete with our instructions.   Personalized Inscriptions Included.



We have been able to create beautiful memorial, tribute, and meditative spaces on our campus for our alumni and donors. We’ve incorporated both curved and straight benches into our designs, and the red stone fits in perfectly with the natural surroundings. We have worked with Scott for nearly ten years, and appreciate his professionalism, his artistry, his attention to detail, and his compassion in all of the projects we’ve worked on together.

I wanted to thank you again for your beautiful work and to let you know the bench is up and stunning. It looks fantastic. The kids at the school have really shown respect for it and it seems to be quite the conversation piece. Jack’s Mom and I planted the mums surrounding it and I think the planting and the bench has been a wonderful salve for wounded spirits. Thank you again! It was a pleasure to do business with you.
