Imagine providing a gift to Balboa Park, for all time… one that promises a brighter future for generations of local children and visitors. A gift that shapes this beautiful resource that brought joy and inspiration during your lifetime.

With a Legacy Gift you can do all of this… and more.

A Legacy Gift honors friends who have included Friends of Balboa Park in their estate plans by naming Friends of Balboa Park in their wills or other life-income gifts. Members enjoy select social gatherings and events. They are recognized in our annual report, on our donor wall and receive a special “thank you” memento.

Planned gifts like bequests, living trusts and other life income gifts, allows anyone to make donations as part of their financial or estate planning. Planned gifts provide critical long-term support for our organization, ensuring future generations of San Diegans will experience the beauty, programs, projects and special events at Balboa Park for years to come.

Planned gifts may also provide:

  • Tax advantages
  • Reduced estate taxes and capital gains
  • Increased cash flow

In addition to a legacy gift, Friends of Balboa Park also offers a
Tree Dedication and Bench Dedication Program for your convenience.
