Cole Conley's Memorial Bench

$5,275 of $5,200 goal

Raised by 88 people in 4 months
On Wednesday, August 9th, 2017 the world lost a man who was a son, a brother, a friend, but most importantly, an inspiration to all.

After discussion with Cole’s family, we decided to start a campaign to help raise funds for a bench that will be placed on the Colorado State University campus in Fort Collins, Colorado where Cole graduated from. Cole played an influential role in numerous clubs and organizations across campus. He cherished every relationship he made throughout campus and impacted the lives of everyone he came across.

We believe that this will be a special and meaningful way to honor Cole’s memory and legacy. It will be a place where people can come and sit with Cole. It will be a place where old friends can come visit during CSU football game days. It will be a place alumni can gather during Homecoming. But most of all, it will be a place of remembrance.

Jake Christensen, Ryan Bernard, and I , Luke Merrill are three of Cole’s fraternity brothers and previous roommates. We have been in discussions with the CSU administration over the past month about the bench and they have been nothing but supportive of the idea. We have communicated to them that we will be initiating a campaign to help raise the funds for the bench, which will cost $5,200. This price includes the materials, installation, maintenance, and commemorative plaque that will go on the bench. The plaque will read:

“-Keep Looking Up-
Cole Fitzpatrick Conley”

Please know that any donation is greatly appreciated. As soon as the goal is reached, the payment will be submitted to CSU at which time the installation of the bench will begin. We will be sure to update all donors about the project and expected completion. Thank you for helping make this possible and for making a place that we can all celebrate Cole’s life.

We Love You Cole

Thank you to everyone for their support thus far! It has been absolutely incredible to see the love and support flood in for Cole and his family.

We are $900 away from reaching our donation goal. Cole’s birthday is coming up on Saturday, 11/11, and we are pushing to reach goal by then. It just seems right.

Please continue to share this campaign to help us reach our goal and thank you again to everyone that has helped along the way!
