Donate to the Endowment Fund

GIVING THROUGH AN ENDOWMENT

Endowments exist in perpetuity and are a great way to honor the memory of a loved one or a living person. Your gift allows you to have a significant impact on the Garden’s future by helping to provide an ongoing income.

An endowment fund has been established by the Fort Worth Botanical Society to benefit the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. Your gift to this endowment will be invested and the income will provide general operating support to the areas where the need is the greatest. A planned gift to the fund will create a living legacy for you and your family. It will touch all components of the Garden, including the beautiful horticultural displays, the Boardwalk, and children’s activities. Contributions of at least $25,000 can be designated for a specific purpose. Gifts of all amounts are welcome.

The Fort Worth Botanical Society is grateful for all types of gifts and welcomes the opportunity to work with you and your personal advisors to determine if one or more planned giving arrangements are appropriate for you. All inquiries and communications are held in strictest confidence and are without obligation.

Contact Erdie Allsup at the Fort Worth Botanical Society office (817) 763-0724 or email fwbs3@aol.com.

Some of the possibilities for planned giving include but are not limited to:

  • Bequest by will or living trust
  • Gifts of securities
  • Charitable gift annuity
  • Charitable remainder trust
  • Gift of retirement plan
  • Gift of life insurance policy

YOUR GIFT WILL KEEP THE GARDEN ALIVE AND GROWING!
