Sonoma Botanical Garden adds pleasure and purpose to many people's lives. For those who want to ensure that the Garden will thrive for generations to come, please consider including us in your estate planning.

Planning a gift displays extraordinary foresight, and we at Sonoma Botanical Garden would be most honored to be a part of your future plans. If you would like more information please feel free to call  (707) 996-3166 or email info@sonomabg.org.

The Garden honors those who have made legacy gifts through bequests, trusts, and other planned gifts with membership in the Magnolia Circle, the garden's legacy circle. Benefits include invitations to special events and recognition in the Garden publications.

Some of our friends name the Garden in their estate plans and never let us thank them for their invaluable support. If you have included the Garden in your plans, we hope that you will share this information with us. We would appreciate the opportunity to express our gratitude, and welcome you into the Magnolia Circle. Of course, if you wish to be anonymous, we will respect your wishes, but would still appreciate knowing about your plans.

If you have already included Sonoma Botanical Garden in your estate plans, please let us know by calling us at (707) 996-3166 or by filling out our estate intention form. Its receipt will enroll you in the Magnolia Circle and help us make certain your intentions will be carried out.

Individual circumstances will vary. As with all tax and estate planning, please consult your attorney or estate planning specialist. You may also use our planned giving information request form.
