Healing Garden Project

We were inspired to transform the medicinal garden into a new Healing Garden to provide our community with a safe, accessible, and healing place to reflect and explore in turbulent times.

Your gift will help deliver a critical education garden that teaches about plant connection to humans, including their amazing power to heal us.

Supporting RBG During COVID-19

You and your loved ones rely on plants for food and the air we breathe. Plants power many aspects of our economy and define and sustain our planet’s ecosystems and habitats. Beyond these undeniable practical benefits for life, plants accomplish something more. They bring meaning and inspiration to life.

By supporting Royal Botanical Gardens, you ensure that Canada’s largest botanical garden remains an essential place to help people connect and care for plants and nature.

Tribute and Memorial Program

Tribute gifts are a meaningful way to cherish today’s events and yesterday’s memories. Is there someone in your life that you would like to honour, celebrate or commemorate, or is there a special occasion for which you would like to say, “you are in my thoughts,” like a birthday, anniversary or a shared memory? Let someone know that you are thinking of them by making a donation to Royal Botanical Gardens.

Legacy Giving Program

Royal Botanical Gardens depends on its members, donors and volunteers to continue our important charitable work. Our Legacy Program is a way to show your commitment now, without affecting your income today. Legacy gifts can take many forms: a bequest, charitable gift annuity, RRSP/RRIF or life insurance policy. Each of these options can provide a significant tax advantage and RBG recommends donors seek legal and financial planning advice when making such a gift.

To learn more about how you can make a planned gift and/or other tax-saving giving options, please call 905-527-1158 (1-800-694-4769), ext. 295.
