Make a Commemorative Gift

The Power of Commemorative Giving

A commemorative donation offers you a thoughtful way to not only affirm your values as a Olmsted supporter, but also recognize that these values were shared by the individual, group or organization being honored. Your tax-deductible gift today is an investment in the future of this historic treasure that is Buffalo’s Olmsted Parks.

NOTE: All commemorative gifts are weather dependent and subject to changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
