1891 Society

Give more than you ever thought possible through planned giving.

Planned gifts of any size will help us protect the parks for decades to come.

With a simple bequest in your will or a beneficiary designation on an insurance policy or retirement account, you can make a lasting impact.

When you let us know that you’ve made provisions in your estate plans you will become a member of the 1891 Society, enjoying invitations to special events, personalized tours and all the benefits afforded to our highest level of donors. This is our way to honor forward-looking individuals, like you.

Each year, we hold a special exclusive event to honor and celebrate all members of the 1891 Society.


“The parks are symbols of Louisville’s potential to return to its connections lost over the years—to heal what was lost due to neglect, disinvestment and redlining”
