Honorarium & Memorial Giving


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. Memorial and honorarium donations must be a minimum of $20.

Student Scholarships


$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.


Garden Benches

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.

$3,500 for most garden benches
$5,000 for those in specialty gardens
$10,000 for those in My Big Backyard



Garden Plantings

There are a number of display beds and seasonal plantings throughout the Garden that can be sponsored each year.  A select group of trees and shrubs are also available for honorariums and memorials.
