Tribute Bench Program

Celebrate. Commemorate. Remember.

The beauty, wonder, and serenity of the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden create a perfect setting to honor a loved one or pay tribute to a special friend. Choose from several beautiful locations in the Garden to place your dedicated bench. An accompanying commemorative plaque will be placed on the bench of your choice.  

Our Tribute Bench Program is $5,000 with recognition of your gift existing for the life of the bench.  

Upon receipt of your donation, our philanthropy team will contact you to confirm your dedication and assist you through the completion of the tribute. When the dedication is in place, a personalized acknowledgement of your tribute gift will be sent to the recipient of your choice, without reference to the size of the donation. 

To discuss available benches and learn more, please contact our Director of Philanthropy, Sara Lemke at or 515.402.4280.
