The Peace Garden in the Mattie J.T. Stepanek Park, Rockville, Maryland is a living tribute to Mattie, a young poet and peace advocate. It represents pathways to peace, and allows visitors to reflect on Mattie’s message, play chess, or simply appreciate life – even with its ups and downs. Throughout the Peace Garden is a ‘mosaic of bricks’ – representing Mattie’s vision of the world and humanity as a mosaic of gifts to be nurtured and offered and accepted.


Sponsoring a personalized gift brick is a great way to highlight your organization, celebrate friends and loved ones, represent a cause, offer a message, share a memory, or simply support the work of Mattie’s Foundation. Mattie’s Foundation usually orders and installs Gift Bricks in the Peace Garden once or twice a year.


100 percent of your Gift Brick sponsorship may be used a tax deduction.


NEW: Upon request, Mattie’s Foundation will send a “gift card”
to you or the person/group being honored with a personalized brick
in Matite’s Park & Peace Garden.
The cards vary by season, but each one will have a photo of
Mattie’s statue and a quote or poem by Mattie,
along with personalized information about the
brick being sponsored (donor, recipient, inscription…).
