Butterfly Garden near Fountain


The Heirloom Circle recognizes and honors those friends and members of Powell Gardens who have made a commitment to the future of the institution by including the Gardens in their estate plans.  Planned giving at Powell Gardens is especially meaningful because the lovely landscape that visitors experience is itself a planned gift from the Powell Family Foundation, the founders of this world-class, cultural attraction.

•             Making a gift to Powell Gardens in your will or trust

•             Participating in a life income arrangement for the benefit of Powell

                      Gardens, such as a charitable remainder trust or charitable

                       gift annuity

•             Creating a lead trust for the benefit of the Gardens

•             Naming Powell Gardens as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or

                       life insurance policy





Planned gifts, both large and small, help Powell Gardens. Invested over time, any size gift can make a significant difference. We hope that you can join us.  Please check with your financial adviser for details on the benefits of these types of gifts.
