Butterfly Garden near Fountain


Planned giving at Powell Gardens is especially meaningful, because the lovely landscape that visitors experience is itself a planned gift by the Powell Family Foundation, which founded this world-class, beautiful cultural attraction. 

Through a planned gift to Powell Gardens, you can support the Gardens and receive lifetime benefits important to your financial future. Planned gifts tailored to your specific circumstances may save surprising amounts in estate, gift and income taxes. Suggested vehicles include wills and bequests, pooled income funds, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts and insurance programs—check with your financial adviser for details.

Planned gifts, both large and small, help Powell Gardens. Invested over time, any size gift can make a significant difference.
