Perennial Society - Planned Giving

The Perennial Society recognizes those who have made or pledged lasting gifts to The Gardens that extend beyond a lifetime. These special people are planting seeds for the future—seeds that will sustain The Gardens for coming generations and ensure that its important work continues.

You may become a member of the Perennial Society by notifying us that you:

  • have made a planned gift that benefits Friends of the Birmingham Botanical Gardens;
  • have included The Gardens in a future bequest;
  • or, would like to make a gift of $10,000 or more to the Friends endowment fund.

Membership is voluntary and without obligation. If you choose, you will be recognized on the Birmingham Botanical Gardens Donor Wall and acknowledged in the Garden Dirt newsletter and the annual report. You will also be invited to special gatherings and tours at The Gardens.
