The Garden is a non-profit organization sustained by the generosity of members and friends.
Each charitable gift supports the Garden’s mission to develop and maintain plant collections for the purpose of display, education, research, conservation and enjoyment.
Give to the Garden
Why is your charitable contribution important?
Memberships cover less than one-third of the Garden's annual expenses. Each charitable gift directly supports the Garden's mission, allowing children and adults to explore the wonders of the natural world through dynamic educational programs and funding critical conservation efforts to protect plants and amphibians.
In these challenging times, your gift truly has the power to help us grow!
Tribute and Memorial Gifts
A tribute gift in honor or memory of your special person is a distinctive way to:
- Celebrate weddings, anniversaries, retirements or birthdays
- Commemorate the birth of a child or grandchild
- Remember a friend or loved one
The Garden welcomes contributions in any amount. Gifts are fully eligible for a charitable income tax deduction and directly support the Garden’s operations, plant collections, educational programs and conservation work. Your gift will be recognized with a special card sent to the honoree or your designated recipient. The gift amount is confidential.
Planned giving enables individuals to make charitable gifts now or after their lifetime. Unlike cash gifts, planned gifts are typically made from a donor’s estate and come to fruition upon the donor’s death. Not just for the wealthy, planned giving empowers people of modest means to make a difference.
