Portland Japanese Garden is honored to receive gifts from individuals wishing to honor or memorialize friends and family. Gifts in any amount will be recognized as such in The Garden Path magazine, and notifications will be sent to the person or family members receiving the Tribute.


When making your gift, please select Tribute/Memorial in the Designation drop-down menu, and indicate the name of the person receiving the tribute in the comments box. Gifts may be recognized either as “In Honor of” or “In Memory of.” Please also enter the name and address of the individual you would like notified of your contribution.

In adherence to the traditions of authentic Japanese gardens, the naming of objects or plants within the Garden as in memory or honor of individuals is not available.

Some exclusive naming opportunities of buildings and spaces within the Garden’s Cultural Village do remain available in recognition of leadership-level gifts. Please contact our Director of Philanthropy, Claire Eisenfeld at [email protected] or 503-542-0281 for additional information.
