Memorial Gifts

End of Life Giving

We frequently receive calls from those who are passionate about the Gardens asking how they can make an end-of-life gift to help sustain the gardens. Simply talk to your financial planner or your attorney. In updating your will, you can make a specific bequest that, upon your passing, a specific monetary gift goes into the Wellfield Botanic Gardens Endowment Fund held by the Community Foundation of Elkhart County.
You may also contact the Community Foundation directly at 574-295-8761 or visit their website: to learn more. Gifts made directly to the Gardens’ endowment held at the Community Foundation receive a 25% match!

By planning ahead, you create a legacy both in your name and for the future of Wellfield Botanic Gardens. For more about Legacy Giving, Click Here.
