Ways to Give

The Nature Center is strengthened by your generosity and your gift makes a difference each and every day. There are numerous ways to support the Nature Center beyond your membership and your gift to our Annual Fund. Please contact our development office to arrange a gift-of-stock or a donation in honor of or in memory of an individual. Gifts by will, or Legacy Gifts, are another meaningful way to ensure the future of the Nature Center. Through various types of bequests to the Nature Center, you may secure a charitable estate-tax deduction for the value of the gift. Best of all, you will know that your generosity will support our mission for years to come.

Donations of $100 or more include membership. Any amounts over $50 may be tax deductible.


Selection_037 Donations $50+ may be tax deductible ($50 represents membership benefits received as part of donation).

 Any donations of $100 or more also include membership benefits.

You may prefer to state in your will or trust a sum of money or a percentage of your estate that you wish to give to the Nature Center.

Whether your gift is great or small, through gift planning, your thoughtfulness, generosity, and commitment might take a form far more meaningful than you ever thought possible as together we build an exceptional Nature Center.


This year was one of introspection as we planned for the Nature Center’s future. We completed our Dunwoody Park Master Plan and adopted a Strategic Plan that will guide us through the year 2020.  We are driven by a vision to build an exceptional nature center. Our planned growth, of which you are so much a part, is guided  by the following core values which reflect the founding and spirit of the Nature Center:

Wonder: We believe in providing all visitors to the Nature Center the opportunity to discover and experience the complexity, diversity and wonder of nature.
Community: We strive to be the soul of our community and, through our activities, events, and personal connections, to provide a pathway for all to be at home in Dunwoody Park.
Reverence: We respect, honor and celebrate the natural world and model stewardship in all that we do.
Commitment: We are dedicated to the mission of the Dunwoody Nature Center; staff and volunteers bring unparalleled energy and professionalism to each task, and motivate others to do the same.
