Setting up a Memorial or Tribute

We work with families to set up memorials or tributes for their loved one’s.  We will collect all of the contributions and update you on the total amount given.  In addition, we will send thank you letters for you for each gift given, but will also supply you with the list of contributors in case you want to send your own thank you acknowledgements.

 A personal acknowledgment will be sent to the honoree or next of kin, without reference to the size of gift. The recipient will be acknowledged in our quarterly magazine, Cultivate. Tribute and memorial donations are fully tax-deductible. The purchaser will receive their tax letter in 2 to 3 weeks.

Once the memorial is complete, the memorial may be made to Botanica in general or you may work with our Development Director to put the memorial money toward something specific in the gardens.  Any memorial over $2,500 will receive a leaf on the Donor Tree Wall in Botanica’s Lobby or if the money is applied to something in the garden, naming opportunities will be discussed with the Development Director on a case by case basis depending on the level of the memorial and the item in the garden.

Contact Jamee Ross, Director of Development, at jross@botanica.org.
