2015, the 20th anniversary of the founding of The Bay Village Foundation, would be an excellent time to honor family or friends with a permanent bronze plaque. The Village Foundation plaque program was established as a way for families and friends to give enduring recognition to Bay citizens in one central place. Donors that contribute at the level of $2500 or more may request a plaque to honor the life work of Bay Village residents living or dead.
