Dedications & Tributes

Brooklyn Botanic Garden holds a special place in the hearts of those who have come to know and love the beauty of this 52-acre garden. Many friends choose to make contributions in honor or in memory of loved ones. Gifts can celebrate marriages, births, retirements, graduations, and many other special occasions; memorial gifts are a touching way to remember friends and loved ones.

Tributes

Tributes are gifts of $20 or more made in honor or in memory of a loved one. A special notification card is sent to the honoree, or, in the case of memorial gifts, to family or friends.

All dedications and tributes are tax deductible and eligible for a matching gift from your employer. Please note that all dedication items are subject to availability.
