Memorials & Tributes
There are several unique opportunities to make a gift in memory or in honor of a loved one, or to commemorate a special occasion or mark a major milestone with a gift to the Oglebay Foundation.
Trees, benches and lamp posts with flower baskets are the most popular ways to express your love. Other naming opportunities exist as well, please call the office 304-243-4166 for more details.
The America’s Future Trees fund was established by Earl Oglebay’s grandson, Courtney Burton, to support the long-term management of Oglebay’s forest resources and the natural beauty of the park. Your gift of support ensures the immediate and necessary tree removal and plantings within the parks.
Gifts made in honor or memory of a friend or loved one are permanently recorded and displayed in the Oglebay Welcome Center.
For more information, please call 304-243-4166.
Nothing is more inviting than a place to sit and admire the beauty of the park you love. The benches that are found throughout the manicured areas of both Oglebay and Wheeling Parks present a wonderful opportunity to honor or memorialize some you love’s love of our wonderful parks.
Bench locations are limited. Please call 304-243-4166 for more information on available locations and costs.

The iconic lamp posts and flower baskets that illuminate and beautify the park present a wonderful opportunity to honor or memorialize someone you love’s love of the park.

Many organizations match the charitable contributions of their employees. Check with your Human Resources Department to see if your place of work will match your gift to the park you love.
