The Desert Botanical Garden sincerely appreciates forward-thinking donors who make charitable gifts to the Garden through their will or estate-plans. These planned or deferred gifts often include cash, stock, insurance or real estate and they play a significant part in preserving both the Garden’s beauty and its ongoing programs. These gifts also may provide additional income at retirement and multiple tax advantages.
This easy-to-use Web site has been developed as a tool to assist you in clarifying your own individual charitable plans. There are many easy giving options from which you can choose strategies that can benefit both you, the Desert Botanical Garden as well as your other nonprofit charitable interests.
You can explore varied options with the Build Your Gift planner. By answering a few basic questions, this interactive tool steps you through the process of narrowing down your choices.
If you already have gift options in mind, click on Compare Gifts to see how your choices match up. Or you can click on eBrochures to request specific information on a planning option. We are also available to help answer your questions, run gift calculations or to connect you with the advice of a member of the Garden’s Planned Giving Committee.
