Help Red Butte Garden Garden grow by leaving a legacy through your will.

Legacy giving is a lasting investment in Red Butte Garden & Arboretum, advancing our mission to connect people with plants and the beauty of living landscapes. When you include Red Butte Garden in your estate plan, you ensure the continued growth of the garden for future generations.

A Legacy Gift can be as simple as including a bequest provision in your will or trust or naming Red Butte Garden & Arboretum as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy or retirement plan. Options are available that can pay income to you during your lifetime or pass assets to your heirs with little or no tax penalty. Regardless of its size, your gift will make a lasting impact in support of the Garden.

For more information, please visit The University of Utah's Legacy Giving page or reach out to Natalie Cope, Director of Philanthropy, at 801.585.5658 or

“We wanted to include Red Butte Garden in our planned giving because we felt it was the most meaningful legacy we could leave to our family and community.”

-Bob and Peggy Stone
