Legacy Giving

Our founders envisioned a beautiful place for our community to enjoy, and they planted a seed that continues to grow into the thriving Garden we know today. You can have the same meaningful impact on the future of our Garden by making or leaving a legacy gift. You can choose to leave a legacy in two ways: through an immediate gift to the endowment fund or a planned gift.

Gifts to the Endowment Fund

A gift to the endowment fund ensures the upkeep, growth, and long-term care of the Garden so that future generations can enjoy it. The Huntsville Botanical Garden Foundation manages the endowment fund to ensure long-term financial resources for the Garden. By making a gift to the endowment fund, donors can help strengthen the Garden, ensure its long-term financial health, and leave a legacy that will give in perpetuity.

If you would like to make a gift to the endowment fund, please email or call 256-830-4447 ext. 246.

Planned Gifts

A planned gift is a thoughtful investment in the future growth of the Huntsville Botanical Garden. By including the Garden in your estate plans, you can meet your own financial needs while also supporting the mission of the Garden. Just as a perennial flower adds perpetual beauty to the Garden by returning and multiplying each year, your planned gift will support the Garden for future generations to enjoy.

There are a variety of ways to reach your financial and charitable goals while supporting the Garden through a planned gift including a bequest intention, appreciated assets, a charitable remainder trust, a charitable lead trust, life insurance, and retirement plans.

If you would like to make a planned gift, please email or call 256-830-4447 ext. 246.
