Memorial Plaza is seen from above on a sunny day. Dozens of oak trees fill the Plaza with a vivid green. These trees surround the two reflecting pools where the North and South towers once stood. Between the large, square pools is the Museum’s glass and steel pavilion.

Sponsor a Cobblestone

Honoring the lives of those who were lost is at the heart of our mission. Occupying eight of the 16 acres at the World Trade Center, the Memorial is a tribute to the past and a place of hope for the future. 

Sponsor a Cobblestone

Cobblestone sponsorship provides an opportunity for any person or organization to sponsor a permanent piece of the Memorial plaza individually or as a gift. Cobblestones line the 8-acre plaza of the Memorial. The stones also create a pathway through the 9/11 Memorial Glade, a tribute to the rescue and recovery effort and everyone who is sick or has died from 9/11-related illness.  

Contributions can be made in memory of or in honor of a friend or loved one. With your gift, you will be given a number that corresponds to a specific cobblestone or paver. Generations of visitors will be able to locate your stone using the name finder or a kiosk at the Memorial site.

While individual cobblestones will not be inscribed, your name will appear on our website, recognizing your generosity.

Your $100 donation will sponsor a cobblestone located on the paths of the Memorial plaza, a beautifully landscaped space surrounding the Memorial pools.

Your $250 donation will sponsor a cobblestone located on the 9/11 Memorial Glade, a committed space on the Memorial dedicated in honor of the first responders, survivors, workers, and residents who were exposed to hazards and toxins in the air at and around the World Trade Center site, resulting in chronic illnesses and the deaths of thousands.

Your $500 donation will sponsor a cobblestone located on the pathway at the center of the Glade, which roughly stands where the primary ramp that was used during the rescue and recovery effort once stood.

Your $1,000 donation will sponsor one of the granite pavers that creates elegant walkways leading to the Memorial.

Your generous contribution of $2,500 will sponsor a paver stone on the 9/11 Memorial Glade pathway which is flanked by six large stone monoliths, ranging from 13 to 18 tons, that are inlaid with World Trade Center steel accompanied by an inscription at either end of the pathway.
