In our efforts to acknowledge that not everyone has $100 to donate at any given time, we’re offering students the opportunity to purchase a plaque at a 25 percent discount. For $75, students at local universities and colleges, institutes and high schools — even middle and elementary schools — can dedicate a plaque on The Bridge in their name, their class, team, organization, a teacher or specific event (such as a prom, homecoming, or graduation). It’s a wonderful way to pay tribute to your alma mater and save money at the same time!
School Fundraising Program For school fundraising programs, we also offer the ability to sell individual plaques. For more information on our School Fundraising Program, pleasecontactus.
Order online Ordering online is safe and secure. You will be directed to your PayPal site, where you can use your credit or debit card. You do not have to have a PayPal account to use the site. Use the drop-down menus beneath each description below to order your plaque. For more than two plaques, repeat the ordering process. Please review these instructions before ordering:
Order plaques in the sidebar on the right and click the Buy Now button. You will be transferred to our PayPal account to complete your transaction. You do not need a PayPal account to complete your order.
Carefully enter the names as you wish them to appear on the plaque(s) — we copy the inscription as you have entered it. The limit is 32 characters and spaces on each plaque. Please count your characters/spaces and adjust your inscription to meet this limitation.
If you wish to order more than two (2) plaques to have them placed together on the bridge, complete your first order, then immediately repeat the process. Please make a note in the "Instructions to merchant" section of the order form.
Order by mail If you are uncomfortable using your credit card information online, please download our brochure and use the attached order form to order an original brass plaque.
Once your order is processed, you will receive a receipt from us detailing your donation, which is tax deductible. This email acts as your receipt. Installation on the bridge takes approximately two months from time of order. Because the plaques are bestowed on your behalf as a result of your donation, the City of Chattanooga technically owns the plaques.
Please “like” us on Facebook to keep up with news about the plaques and other events on or near The Bridge.
Your plaque donation is 100% tax-deductible under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code, Section 7.
