Create a Lasting Legacy

Interested in leaving a lasting legacy? Consider a planned gift to the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum.

Become part of the Legacy Society, founded by Dorothy and Joseph Young, by designating the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum in your will and ensure Nebraska's green legacy for generations to come. 

Give a planned gift. We partner with two foundations: The University of Nebraska Foundation and the Nebraska Community Foundation. Gifts of securities, real estate, retirement assets, cash, life insurance, Ag Commodities, stock, or tangible property can be given through both foundations.

Consider a major gift that will have a long and lasting impact on Nebraska through strengthening our programs. We would love to have a conversation with you about where your passion meets our mission.

Why Legacy Society Members Give

I included NSA in my estate plan because I want to ensure that knowledge of native plants and prairie biodiversity is passed on to future Nebraskans. The work NSA does to sustain native seed source, promote community tree planting and gardening, and share vital information with home gardeners becomes ever more important as the effects of climate change are realized. NSA's programs help make the world I want my children to grow up in. Setting up a legacy gift to NSA was an easy way for me to support that work.
