Honor & Memorial Gifts


Celebrate a birthday, anniversary or holiday, share a memory or say thank you today with Desert Botanical Garden’s Honor and Memorial Gift Program. When you recognize someone or mark a special occasion through the Garden, we will notify the honoree or honoree’s family with a letter describing the memorial or honor gift. And with a contribution of $25 or more, your gift is listed in a special section of the Garden’s magazine, The Sonoran Quarterly

The Garden has many ways to help you celebrate or honor someone special.

Honor/Memorial Card

$25 and up

With a donation of $25 or more, a special card will be sent to your honoree or honoree’s family notifying them of your thoughtful gift. In addition, the individual’s name being honored or remembered will be listed in a special section of The Sonoran Quarterly, the Garden’s member and donor magazine.

Tribute Tree Tile

$300 Donation

With this opportunity, a metal plaque is inscribed with your choice of wording to honor or memorialize a loved one. The tile is affixed to a tribute plaque located on Archer House at the Desert Botanical Garden.

How to Read a Plant Label

As a place of education, research, exhibition and conservation of desert plants, the Garden provides information about plants using many different techniques. One of these methods is through labels. These labels provide the Latin name used by the scientific community, its common name, where it grows and when it blooms.

You can customize your Garden experience further by downloading the Garden app. It includes trail guides, maps, garden tour, plant information and pictures, and a learning center that helps you care for your plants at home. You can download the app through iTunes or Google Play for 99 cents.

The Garden app was developed by Clarisoft & MuseumXP and Garden staff members.
