We're proud to recognize your tax-deductible gift in honor of a friend or loved one with a memorial at the Arboretum.
We're happy to work with you to determine a location and specific plant that will serve as the living memorial for your loved one. Your planted tree or woodland shrub features a metal identification tag that acknowledges your gift.
We work with a local artist to design a granite bench which features engraved lettering recognizing your friend or loved one. Once installed within the Arboretum, this bench serves as a wonderful place to visit - natural, peaceful, and filled with life.
Gifts to Viles Arboretum are vital to furthering our mission. The Legacy Society is a special group of people that have made planned gifts to the Arboretum.
A planned gift is a philanthropic gift and legacy that is funded either during your lifetime or after your death; the gift is part of a larger estate-planning process in which you decide how certain assets are distributed.
