Memorial Gifts 2019-02-27T18:35:59+00:00


In both times of loss or times of celebration, the beauty of Tower Hill Botanic Garden has inspired many to make a memorial or commemorative gift in honor of a loved one. Throughout the gardens, many benches and trees bear the names of those who have passed, as well as celebrations such as wedding anniversaries, milestone birthdays, or other important accomplishments. Such memorial gifts feature a plaque with the name of the individual being honored and those making the contribution.

Trees in the garden are often dedicated to represent the lasting strength and impact loved ones have on us. For those who are interested in dedicating a tree, the Horticulture and Advancement teams will collaborate with you to select an existing, thriving tree that embodies the spirit of the individual being honored.

Throughout the garden, benches offer places for contemplation, relaxation, and remembrance. For those interested in dedicating a bench, the Advancement team will collaborate with you to select a location for a bench that inspires fond memories of the honored individual for you and other visitors.


  • The location for a tree or bench is always dependent on the Master Plan of Tower Hill Botanic Garden and our long-term vision for the garden. The Advancement and Horticulture teams will work with you to find the perfect location to honor your loved one, in a place that contributes to the beauty of the garden, as a whole.
  • With your contribution, a plaque will be installed on the bench or near the tree with your loved one’s name and other applicable commemorative information.
  • On the day of dedication, we will provide you with a complimentary private room to host friends and family for a memorial or celebratory gathering. Catering needs may be arranged separately through our Private Events department. If you are interested, the Advancement team will work the Private Events team to coordinate this event with you.
  • Donations for memorial or commemorative dedications help to support the continued operation of Tower Hill Botanic Garden. These gifts help us preserve Tower Hill as a place of beauty, healing, and reflection for all of our visitors. As a 501c3 nonprofit organization, donations to Tower Hill are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
