Adopt a Bench

Our campus benches are where students come together to share laughter in the sunshine, teachers plan lessons, parents watch softball games, or where alumni return to campus and can sit and take in the place that they once called home during their magical years in Paris. When you sit on these benches, you will likely notice their plaques and you may find yourself wondering what the story is behind each unique inscription. You are not just resting on a bench, you are sharing a memory.

  • Bench adoptions are fully tax deductible. Gifts of €5,000 may be remitted to ASP for a French gift receipt. Gift of $6,500 may be remitted to the American School of Paris Foundation for a US gift receipt.
  • Bench adoptions received will be fabricated and installed within three months of the gift date.
  • Please contact for more information.

Adopt a bench and the plaque is yours to name, your memory to leave.

The benches were unveiled at the Homecoming and Community Celebration in 2018 in the presence of hundreds of ASP families and alumni. Thousands of students, parents, faculty, staff, and visitors walk through our campus each year, why not leave them wondering what the story is behind your plaque?
