Engraved Bricks

You Belong in the Zoo!

The Pave the Way program is designed to give you a unique opportunity to be recognized as a donor to the Festival Plaza by purchasing a commemorative engraved brick inscribed with your name, family, group, class, or business. You can even commemorate a special event, remember a loved one, or celebrate a milestone... the possibilities are endless! Your personalized brick will be permanently installed in the Festival Plaza.

The purchase of a brick is considered a charitable contribution to the Friends of the Alexandria Zoo (FOTAZ). Consult your tax professional as to your deduction up to the amount acceptable by current tax laws.

Brick Size: 4 inch by 8 inch
Price per Brick: $100

Please Note Inscription Information:

  • Punctuation and blank spaces are counted as characters.
  • You can inscribe anything you'd like, as long as it is family-appropriate and fits in the allotted 18 spaces per line (3 lines maximum).
  • You can use any characters on the keyboard, so consider using "&" instead of "and" to save space, or separate names with dashes instead of a comma and space. Unfortunately, if the character you want isn't on a regular keyboard, we are unable to inscribe it on your brick.
  • Inscriptions will be automatically centered on the brick.
  • FOTAZ reserves the right to refuse any submission it deems unsuitable for the purposes described in this offer.
  • You will be notified once your brick has been completed.
  • We are unable to honor any special placement requests.
