Planned Gifts — Planting the Seed of a Legacy

Charitable bequests and beneficiary designations are easy ways to “plant the seeds” of a future gift for the Arboretum. By designating the Arboretum as a beneficiary of a qualified retirement account or life insurance policy, you can provide a significant gift to the Arboretum.

There are several advantages to both bequests and beneficiary designation gifts:

  • Revocable — You can modify or revoke the gift at any time during your lifetime.
  • Avoid Probate — Bequests and beneficiary designations avoid the probate process.
  • Simple — Consult your estate attorney or simply fill out a brief beneficiary designation form provided by the plan or account administrator.

If you are interested in establishing your legacy and making a lasting impact at the Arboretum, please visit csufplannedgift.org Opens in new window or contact our Office of Planned Giving at 657-278-3947 or CSUFPlannedGift@fullerton.edu.

Plant Donations

We normally do not accept plant specimens as donations. If a plant is rare or unusual we may want to add it to our collections, but there is a high risk of disease transmission from foreign plants. Please contact our front desk at 657-278-3407 or farboretum@fullerton.edu to see if your plant would be a suitable addition to our collections.
