Provenance Data for collection material?

You speak to one of the issues I have puzzled over, what happens to my
collection when I am gone.

I frankly, from past experience, do not trust any of the smaller botanical
gardens to conserve a collection. My initial thought was an educational
institution, but the cuts to these do not even bode well for their ability
to conserve a collection.  If you have any thoughts as to where those of us
interested can place collections for posterity I for one (and my current
collection is much smaller than many here) would like to hear of them.
