One-Hundred Tree Challenge

The Campaign for Campus Beautification

100 Tree ChallengeLast fall, The One-Hundred Tree Challenge—the College’s adopt-a-tree campaign transformed the Daemen campus grounds into a beautiful green space, not only for the Daemen family but for the Amherst community at large.

After a successful first phase, where 110 mature trees and manicured areas were installed, we are excited to begin the second and final phase of The One-Hundred Tree Challenge.


As in the first phase, we have set the adoption price artificially low in order to encourage your participation. You can adopt a tree for a mere $199 and a stone bench for $600.


The entire cost of a tree, bench, or any additional donation is tax deductible. Payments can be made conveniently at Dedications during this final phase will be accepted through the close of business on Friday, September 19, 2014.
