Engraving Creative Suggestions

  • For extra impact, consider donating $500 for 6 planks, but only putting engraved text on the middle two planks. The other planks will be kept blank, focusing attention on what is said in the middle.
  • Consider honoring a loved one, friend, colleague, or mentor.
  • Consider honoring a public figure, hero, favorite musician.
  • Consider wisdom of the ages, a common sense saying or a short poem.
  • Consider positive words that define you and inspire others.

Stipulated Considerations (the Fine Print)

  1. The Inner Arbor Trust reserves all rights to disallow any proposed text for engraving, which in its sole discretion, may be offensive, commercial or otherwise inappropriate.

  2. The Inner Arbor Trust reserves all rights as to the specific placement of the engraved planks on the floor of the Chrysalis. The Trust will notify each donor as to the location of their engraving.

  3. This is solely a solicitation for a charitable donation. No goods are being sold.

  4. While Ipe ironwood is extremely hard and long lasting (usually decades), it is a natural, organic material subject to changes in color, and eventual decline. As such, the Inner Arbor Trust makes no warranty, explicit or implied, as to the condition or the duration of the engraved planks.

  5. All donations are contributed freely and permanently.
