Planned Giving

Fairchild is thankful to the numerous individuals who have made future plans for the garden through their wills and estate planning.  These deferred, or planned, gifts provide long-term support for the garden you love and maximize the benefit to you, as a tax payer, by potentially lowering estate, gift and income taxes.

Planned Gifts may be customized to fit your specific needs. Below are a few examples of planned gifts:

The Fairchild Legacy Society

As a special way of thanking you, the Fairchild Legacy Society has been established to honor Fairchild’s loyal supporters who have made a Planned Gift or included a bequest to Fairchild in their wills.

The Legacy Society meets annually for a thank you lunch in the garden with Fairchild’s Executive Director. Also, new Legacy Society members receive a lignum vitae (Guaiacum sanctum) plant, Fairchild’s Legacy Society symbol.

If you have made a bequest to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, please let us know so that you can be recognized as a member of the Legacy Society. Your gift will serve as an inspiration for others. If you choose to remain anonymous, we will certainly respect your wishes.

If you or your attorney has any questions about how best to accommodate your estate planning goals with a gift to Fairchild, or for more information about the Legacy Society, please contact :
