Trees: A Living Legacy

The Northeast Iowa Community College Living Legacy Program allows you to honor a loved one or an event with a living tribute by planting a tree on campus. The College is committed to preserving and enhancing the natural beauty of our campuses and has developed a conservation plan with designated planting sites.

For a one-time gift of $500 or more, a tree may be planted* on one of the College's campuses including the acquisition, planting, care and a plaque honoring the individual or event for which the tree was given. Recognition of your gift will also be listed on this webpage.

Beyond serving as a commemoration of your loved one or event, these sites will also serve as an ideal spot for students to study and instructors to teach.
