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.
