Memorials and honorariums are wonderful ways to honor a loved one, while helping the Garden accomplish our mission.
These funds are used to care for our 96 acres of grounds and to keep
the Garden growing. We will send a card
to your designated recipient or family letting them know that a gift has been
made in their honor or memory.
$20 and up
$100 per class
for Garden program or outreach visit to classroom.
Memphis Botanic Garden's Education Department serves over 43,000 students annually,
both here at the Garden and right in their own classrooms. Although our program fees are nominal, not
every school is able to participate, due to limited funding. Your scholarship donations help broaden our reach and
serve those teachers who request programming but cannot afford it.
A select number of benches are available for honorariums and memorials. Benches include labels with an inscription
noting both the donor and honoree. Bench
placement is based on donor preference, but location is not guaranteed.
