How You Can Help

Garden of Peace Memorial PictureWe need the help of individuals, businesses and foundations to fulfill the Garden's role of commemorating victims of homicide.

Through the generosity of many, the Garden of Peace has offered a sanctuary for survivors as well as an important tool in our efforts to foster peace. Your donation of time, money and resources will help us maintain the memorial, host the annual Honor Program and ensure that everyone can afford to add the name of their loved one to the Garden.

Spread the Word

You can help by making a financial donation, volunteering and helping to spread the word. Tell others about the Garden of Peace. Encourage them to make a donation, include a victim's name in the memorial, or volunteer.

Planned Giving (Charitable Bequests)

By making a charitable bequest in your will or living trust, you can leave a planned gift to the Garden of Peace and provide important support for years to come. You can make a bequest of cash, securities, real property, or personal property. You may also contribute a percentage of your estate or the entire residual of your estate. Your estate will receive a charitable estate tax deduction for the full value of the donation, so your estate will not pay estate tax on these assets. Please note that the Garden of Peace is not engaged in rendering legal or tax advice about charitable bequests. Donors are urged to seek the advice of their estate planning counsel.

Gifts of Stock and Appreciated Assets

You may also make a gift of appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds you have held for over a year.

  • You receive an immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, no matter what you originally paid for them.
  • You pay no capital gains tax on the transfer when the stock is sold.
  • Giving appreciated stock could be more beneficial than giving cash.

We sell your securities and use the proceeds to support the Garden of Peace.

Please let us know your stock gift intentions by contacting us at [email protected] or 617-586-1369.  We will provide you with the information you need to give your broker and get the information we need from you to make sure that we properly acknowledge your generosity.

Employer Matching Gifts

Many employers and companies sponsor matching gift programs for their employees. At no extra cost to the employee, the company will send a donation to the Garden. That means your gift to the Garden of Peace could be doubled or even tripled! If your company participates in matching gift programs, request the appropriate form, complete it and mail it in with your donation and the Garden will take care of the rest!
