If one of your clients arranges an estate gift for the benefit of the Gardens, we would very much appreciate knowing about the gift, both so we can express our sincere gratitude and – as noted above – so we can make sure we will be able to fulfill the donor’s wishes.

Of course, we respect the fact that in some cases donors prefer to remain anonymous. If you are willing to serve as an intermediary, a client of yours can share information about his or her plans without divulging his or her identity.

  • Learn more about Perennial Society.
  • Download a confidential form that can be used in notifying Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens that an estate gift has been arranged for the foundation's benefit.  

Finally, we want to be of assistance to you in any way we can, whether you are simply looking for general information about charitable giving, considering particular options on behalf of a particular client, or needing our cooperation in the administration of a bequest or other type of planned gift.
