Leave a Legacy

Visionaries have impacted The North Carolina Arboretum from its founding until today. 

With your decision to leave a bequest or establish a planned gift, a commitment to The North Carolina Arboretum Society can extend beyond your lifetime. Whether large or small, such a gift reflects an extraordinary and forward-looking sentiment, ensuring that future generations will continue to be educated, inspired, and enthusiastic about preserving the natural world.
An honor society has been created to recognize the thoughtful generosity of Arboretum friends who, through their estate plans have pledged future gifts to the Arboretum.
Contributions to The North Carolina Arboretum Society (EIN # 56-1712373) are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. For people 70.5 years of age or older, gifts in any amount up to $100,000 made directly from your IRA in 2010 are tax-free and can count toward your required minimum deduction. 
For more information about leaving a legacy through a planned gift, please contact George Ivey, Development Officer, at 828.665.2492. We look forward to working with you and your financial advisors to help you achieve personal philanthropic and financial goals while also advancing the mission of the Arboretum.
