Welcome to Gift Planning

Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation for The Morton Arboretum and its mission while accommodating your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals. With smart planning, you may actually increase the size of your estate and/or reduce the tax burden on your heirs. Just as important, you will know that you have made a meaningful contribution to the Arboretum.

We recommend that you familiarize yourself with various gift options by exploring Plan Your Gift and What to Give. Then compare gift options and/or calculate how these gifts could work for you. And of course, please contact us for assistance or to discuss your personal situation and objectives.
