Make an Enduring Difference

There are a variety of ways to make a charitable gift to Horticultural Research Institute. While cash gifts are the most popular, there are other strategies that address your interest in supporting HRI, but also provide you with income and tax benefits.

HRI welcomes the opportunity to work with you to remember the industry in your future plans. A planned gift is one you arrange during your lifetime with the benefit to HRI deferred. Planned gifts create a permanent legacy through the eventual establishment of endowed research and scholarship funds.

Planned gifts made through trusts, bequests, charitable gift annuities, and other long-term arrangements enable individuals of all means to create a permanent legacy through the eventual establishment of endowed scholarships and programs.

Donors who provide support for HRI in their Will are recognized as HRI Heritage Club members [link to named fund page, anchor to heritage club list]. Other options include creating a trust or charitable gift annuity, naming HRI as the beneficiary of a retirement or life insurance plan, and donating tangible personal property.

Making a bequest to the Horticultural Research Institute is easy. All it takes is a simple inclusion of the Horticultural Research Institute in a will or family trust. Your personal financial benefits of planned gifts to the Horticultural Research Institute will depend on your individual situation, but the opportunity to make a difference is always great.
