Planned Giving

How to Plan a Gift to Tohono Chul –

Thanks for showing interest in learning more about planned giving at Tohono Chul.

Bequests from a will or trust are the most common tools used for planned giving at our garden. Once you submit your Bequest Notification Form, you’ll become a part of our Wilson Legacy Society. This special and unique society is home to those who love Tohono Chul so much that they’ve decided to add our beautiful garden as a beneficiary to their estate plans

The Wilson Legacy Society is named in honor of the creators of Tohono Chul, Dick and Jean Wilson, who had the vision of creating our garden over 40 years ago. All our Wilson Legacy Society members receive a Lifetime Membership to Tohono Chul.

There are other creative and flexible giving options that can benefit you and Tohono Chul. Consider, for example, donating stock, a percentage of an IRA account, life insurance, or your required minimum distributions from investments.

As you consider your options, I would be happy to answer any questions you may have. Feel free to give me a call at (520) 742-6455 x 261 or email me at

Hope to talk soon,

Frank Vidal,

Philanthropy Manager
