Planned Giving

Make a Planned Gift

Help build financial resources to carry GCV into the next century. Planned or "legacy" giving is a way for donors to ensure that the GCV remains strong for the work of future generations.

What is Planned Giving?

Planned giving offers a simple way for donors to make substantial gifts, without depleting income or retirement assets, while also reaping significant tax advantages. Will bequests, insurance and gift annuities are just a few options that can support both the GCV and the donor’s philanthropic goals. 

The Green Arrow Society

Named for one of the GCV’s most enduring and familiar symbols, the Green Arrow Society is a group of loyal members and friends who are supporting the GCV’s future with planned gifts. Just as the GCV’s green arrow signage has directed hundreds of thousands of visitors along Historic Garden Week in Virginia's tour routes for 80 years, members of the Green Arrow Society are helping point the way to a bright and sustainable future for the GCV.
