Celebrate, commemorate or remember loved ones with a unique and meaningful tribute at Bok Tower Gardens. Areas of the Garden can become “a bit better or more beautiful” through support of an honor and memorial contribution.

Dedicated Funds

A new way to recognize someone special! Donors to the dedicated funds will be listed along with text about honored persons on the digital donor wall in the Visitor Center. An exclusive Bok Tower Gardens notecard will be sent to honored persons & family as to notify them of your generous contribution.

Tree Fund

Our Tree Fund is an ideal opportunity to honor or remember someone with a fondness for sitting beneath a canopy of oaks or who enjoyed the majesty of trees. Contributions to this fund in any amount for the care of our tree canopy makes a great gift or memorial.

Plant Fund

Celebrate an individual who spent their days exploring the blossoming beds of the Bok Tower Gardens or enjoyed digging in their own garden by making a donation to support the Plant Fund. Contributions to this fund will be utilized to maintain abundant and colorful garden beds throughout Bok Tower Gardens.

Land Restoration & Management Fund

The longleaf pine and wiregrass ecosystem was once a dominant feature of the Lake Wales Ridge, home to Bok Tower Gardens. Honor a loved one or friend who believes in the lasting impact of conservation through a contribution to restoring and managing the natural areas that surround the Gardens. Contributions to our Land Restoration & Management Fund are used to apply land management techniques and return native species to the area.

Celebrate a wedding, retirement, the life of a loved one, or other special occasions with a commemorative plaque on one of our many Garden features. Staff will assist you in creating an inscription for your plaque.
