Tributes & Memorial Donations
Your donation in tribute or memoriam for a loved one provides a lasting memory and helps enable the Garden to fulfill its mission to preserve Ruth’s extraordinary Garden and inspire and educate the public about the beauty and benefits of drought tolerant plants!
Donors who give $500 or more are eligible for a special donor tile that will be part of the new welcome wall which faces the Nursery and greets visitors.
You may also become a Sustaining Donor to the Garden with a monthly or annual recurring donation. click here
– “In honor” gifts are made in the name of a special living relative, colleague or friend whereas “in memory” gifts are made in tribute to a loved one who is deceased. We will send you an acknowledgement of your donation and will notify the family of your gift.
