Make a Tribute Donation in Honor of Someone Special
We want to inform our Elmhurst College community of changes to our tribute gift program.
The College will no longer be installing new commemorative pavers as part of the program. The more than 1,200 bricks that were installed in the front of Hammerschmidt Memorial Chapel were consistently exposed to harsh weather, standing water and vehicle traffic, which is why we have chosen to move them.
All of the pavers have been preserved and temporarily moved to Kranz Forum, on the east side of the Frick Center, while a new, permanent location is being prepared. By Homecoming weekend (Oct. 5, 2019) all memorial bricks will be installed in front of the Gates of Knowledge, which will provide a more suitable area for display and longevity.
We are in the process of creating a new tribute program that will provide alumni, benefactors and friends of the College with an opportunity to memorialize and honor individuals and families on campus going forward. The specifics of this new program will be posted here soon.
If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact Ljiljana Milojevic, assistant director of alumni engagement, or call (630) 617-3788.
