Memorialize, pay a tribute, or say thank you to a beloved family member or industry colleague by participating in any of the NACE Foundation’s following campaigns.

Legacy Tree Campaign

Leave a legacy beyond your lifetime.

In October 2015, the NACE Foundation introduced the Legacy Tree Campaign at the NACE Training Center, the Elcometer building, in Houston, TX. Replacing the NACE Foundation’s 2009-2014 “Bricks” Campaign, the Legacy Tree gives members and donors the opportunity to pay tribute to friends, family, and loved ones in an eye-catching way.

The Legacy Tree includes polished bronze, silver, and gold leaves surrounding branches and bases carved from rich mahogany wood. Butterflies, acorns, and stones also provide additional means of recognition and add to the Legacy Tree’s appeal and charm. The following items on the Legacy Tree are available for purchase:

Legacy Tree Item Price
Silver Leaf $1,000
Gold Leaf $1,500
Small Stone $2,500
Butterfly $3,000
Acorn $5,000
Large Stone $10,000
Note: “Bricks” Campaign donors from 2009-2014 have had their purchased brick(s) transcribed onto a bronze leaf on the Legacy Tree, a $500 value.  The bronze leaves recognize only the “Bricks” Campaign supporters, and are not available for purchase.

Stars Campaign

Become a lasting part of NACE’s history.

The NACE Foundation began its Stars Campaign in 2009 as a way for members and donors to honor or memorialize someone special.  Gifts are recognized in the form of a star plaque, displayed prominently outside the NACE Training Center, the Elcometer Building, located in Houston, Texas.

Each plaque is framed in a weather-resistant cast aluminum backing, and includes a 5-point dimensional star placed on top of a textured background. The inscription can be up to a maximum of five lines with 36 characters per line.  Each space is counted as a character.

Star Size Price
2 ft x 2 ft $15,000
3 ft x 3 ft $20,000
