Memorials and Tribute Gifts

Honor Someone Special With a Gift in Their Name

Your donation will be a lasting tribute and enhance the experience for everyone who visits the Garden.

An Example of How It Works

John and his mother smiling When John's mother passed away, he knew he wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for her. He remembered that during her lifetime she was always praising the Garden for its tireless efforts to better the community.

John considered the benefits of having either a bench or paver inscribed with his mother's name to remember her legacy. Read more information on these and other recognition opportunities at the Garden.
