Give more than you ever thought possible

You can help guarantee Olmsted Parks Conservancy’s future for decades to come. Making provisions in your financial or estate plans will help ensure that our Olmsted Parks and Parkways remain the vibrant green jewels of our city 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. Planned gifts of any size will help us protect the parks for decades to come.

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 will organize a very special evening to honor and celebrate all members of the 1891 Society. This year’s 1891 Society Social gathering will be on Thursday, September 22, 2022. Guests will enjoy a catered dinner, personalized tour of the park, and a thank you gift.

If you have already taken steps to include Olmsted Parks Conservancy in your plans or would like more information, please contact Jesse Hendrix-Inman at 502-456-8125 or

Give more than you ever thought possible by remembering  Olmsted Parks Conservancy in your estate. Thank you.
