Learn which assets are most commonly used to fund a gift.

Cash

One of the most common ways to make a gift to Missouri Botanical Garden is to write a check, give a credit card number, or donate online.

Stocks & Bonds

Make a gift of publicly-traded securities to Missouri Botanical Garden and potentially save income tax and capital gains tax, too.

Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make a gift. A gift of these assets can shield your heirs from taxes while funding the Garden's future.

Life Insurance

Life insurance is a valuable asset for making a charitable gift. It can be made without diminishing other investments or assets earmarked for family members.

Real Estate

A gift of real estate allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive tax and income advantages and make a significant charitable gift to the Garden.

Personal Property

A gift of artwork, coins, antiques, or other personal property can be an excellent way to support the Garden.
