Your Contribution, Our Future

Planned Giving

Since 1891 The New York Botanical Garden has been a leading force in advancing knowledge about plants, preserving biodiversity, and enhancing lives for countless visitors who come to the Garden for its natural beauty.

When you include the Botanical Garden in your estate plans, you help sustain the Garden's mission and provide support for its acclaimed collections and programs for generations to come. A legacy gift can take many forms. You can name The New York Botanical Garden as a beneficiary in your Will, life insurance, IRA, or retirement plan.

You can also establish a gift that will provide you payments for life by funding a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder trust.
