Your thoughtful philanthropic support of The Healing Garden enables us to maintain, broaden, and enhance our program offerings and services. In addition, your gifts are a critical lifeline in helping to ensure we can continue providing the necessary services to all of our clients, regardless of their ability to pay.
At The Healing Garden we are grateful for all of the gifts we receive. Every gift is important and no donation is ever too small. We gratefully accept:
GIFTS Honoring or Remembering Loved Ones
Contributions made in memory or honor of a special individual represent a personal and meaningful way to donate. Family members often suggest that memorial gifts be made to The Healing Garden in lieu of flowers in memorial announcements, or ask that gifts be made to remember loved ones on birthdays, anniversaries, or other special occasions. Just attach a note to your contribution listing the honoree’s name. We will acknowledge gifts to family members or others, at your request, provided that we have contact information.
WISH LIST & special opportunities
Our Wish List indicates some of our cash and in-kind needs, and Special Opportunities exist for donors who would like to underwrite specific functions or projects. And before giving away any office or garden equipment, please check with Margaret Koch to see if we can use it!
Monthly donations help give The Healing Garden a base of dependable income, which in turn enables us to plan our activities for the year with confidence. Convenient monthly giving also enables you to make your donation in easy-to-manage amounts. The Healing Garden will send you one tax receipt for your total annual donation amount each year.
Charitable Gift Planning
Charitable gift planning creates the opportunity to recognize and celebrate our donors who include The Healing Garden in their estate plans — whether by will, trust, insurance, or life income arrangement.
Planned gifts can fulfill immediate needs or help build an endowment to ensure that the programs and services of The Healing Garden continue for future generations. This is an opportunity for our donors to create their own legacies.
Examples of planned giving include:
The simplest planned gift is to remember The Healing Garden in your will or estate. If you are interested in exploring other vehicles for a charitable planned gift, we encourage you to speak with your personal financial, tax, and/or legal advisor(s).
We invite your inquiries and would be pleased to discuss with you and your advisors how a planned gift might be arranged to meet your unique needs and goals. Your conversations will place you under no obligation, and will remain confidential. For more information, please contact Janet Ganson at alison@HealingGarden.net, or call 978.456.3532, ext. 4. We hope that you will consider The Healing Garden when contemplating your charitable planning, and we thank you for your thoughtful philanthropy.
Each and every gift we receive is important and plays a critical role in helping us to sustain our mission. We thank you for your support and philanthropy.
