Help grow your Garden 

The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens thanks all who have been so supportive of our efforts to develop a nationally recognized botanic garden for our community to enjoy. In order to continue to maintain and develop the Gardens, “Cheyenne’s Treasure,” as some like to call us, we ask that you consider a gift the Gardens.
We accept gifts such as annual giving, in memory, in honor of a special someone or even lifetime gifts and in estate planning.
Please list below what your donation is for. THANKS!

CHARITABLE BEQUESTS

Once the needs of your family have been considered, we hope you include the Gardens in your estate plans. Your attorney should assist you with the wording so your wishes are met. Even a small amount can have a big impact over time.

Charitable bequests may also be used to support specific gardens and projects. For example, the Paul Smith Children’s Village received substantial funding through a gift from the Paul Smith Trust. Thanks, in part, to this support, this project became a reality.

APPRECIATED ASSETS

A gift of appreciated securities such as stocks, mutual funds, bonds or real estate is another giving option. Excellent tax advantages exist if you donate appreciated assets you have owned for more than one year. An outright gift of long-​​term appreciated assets may avoid capital gains taxes and qualifies for a charitable income tax deduction equal to the market value of the securities.
Call us for more information. 307−637−6458. Ask for our Development Director.

ENDOWED GIFTS

An endowed gift is permanently invested, and only a portion of the earnings is withdrawn. The principal is never spent. A gift to the Friends of the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens endowment not only helps today but also builds future stability by enabling us to plan projects, because the gift is a permanent one.

GIFTS OF LIFE INSURANCE

Many of us have life insurance. Some have had policies for years, and the life insurance is no longer needed for personal or financial reasons. In these cases, it may be an opportunity to make a significant gift to the Friends of the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens.

LASTING GIFTS ON DISPLAY AT THE GARDENS

Naming rights: We regularly are able to provide a wide variety of naming rights from whole buildings to rooms to gardens and more. Leave a lasting legacy for a loved one, your family or your business. Contact us for more information.
