A donor tree is a wall sculpture used for mounting and displaying engraved plaques. These plaques can be used to recognise a donation, or remember a loved one. It is a perpetual and effective fundraising opportunity suitable for any organisation. From crematoria and cemeteries, to hospitals, hospices and schools, all can benefit from the addition of a fundraising tree.
Finch Tree® copper fundraising trees can be used to mark any occasion, from a birth or marriage, to a memorial for a loved one. The plaques can be left on the tree for a set period, before being returned to the donor to make way others. This ensures a constant revenue for your organisation.
Designed and made in the UK
We work from original artwork produced by our own artists.
Each tree is a work of art in its own right.
Top quality materials are used to ensure that each tree lasts as long as possible and without any maintenance.
The copper and marine-grade stainless steel used will withstand any amount of weather outdoors and will last for a lifetime.
The leaf plaques are made from high quality metals including brass, copper and stainless steel.
Suitable for inside use and outside in all weathers.
For environmental reasons we have chosen pure uncoated metals for our plaques, instead of plastics and laminates. These metals will last indefinitely and can be infinitely recycled. They are however, natural materials and plaques made from copper and brass will darken quite quickly outdoors.
Copper donor trees are also uncoated and will patina quickly, particularly outdoors. This process should be allowed to develop naturally and no attempt should be made to restore the tree. The oxide will build up to become a protective layer on the surface and will ensure its long, serviceable and beautiful life.
If the natural patination of copper or brass is of concern, then we would recommend that stainless steel be opted for. This marine grade steel will keep its appearance even when subjected to rain, or a salt-laden atmosphere.
