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.

Tip Tap Pay

Royal Botanical Gardens is now offering touchless giving at two RBG locations: Cherry Hill Gate and our Arboretum!  

Tip Tap Pay is a contactless payment processing device that allows you to make small donations in specific denominations through Interact, Visa, Mastercard, Google Pay and Apple Pay. Devices make different sounds upon successful payment approval or decline, letting you know the status of your tap. Devices do not store personal information and there is no way to obtain payment card information from the device if stolen. Receipts for donations are available upon request to the Development Department.
