A tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor a person’s life and accomplishments, memorialize a loved one or commemorate a special occasion. Add beauty to the Olmsted Parks by making a tribute gift with a simple donation, a newly planted tree or a lovely wood bench.
Celebrate an occasion or memorialize a life by protecting Louisville’s Olmsted-designed parks and parkways with a donation to the Conservancy. Tribute donation recipients will be notified that you have made a donation in their honor.
