Commemorative Benches

Garden Commemorative Benches are a special way to celebrate a big anniversary or birthday, honor family and friends, remember loved ones who have passed away, or simply show the community your commitment to conserving native plants. These meaningful tributes and memorials help us create beautiful places to rest and enjoy nature throughout the Garden.

Gifts of Commemorative Benches are 20-year leases and the gift range is $25,000 to $100,000 depending on the location in the Garden. Currently, we are only placing redwood benches on the west side of the Garden. Bench gifts are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law and provide critical financial support for the Garden's core programs.
