Donate to the Botanical Gardens
Watch the full interview with our Horticulture staff and see what your donations mean to them!
The Botanical Gardens relies almost exclusively on admissions, membership, special events and your charitable contributions to meticulously care for approximately 43,800 plants throughout the year. Our permanent, year-round collection includes 5,400 plants from around the globe. Seasonal plants include 38,000 annuals and exhibit plants as well as over 400 food-producing plants that directly benefit our community. Your generous contributions also help to maintain the historic conservatory, offer impactful and free programming for students, and provide compensation for our small family of dedicated employees. By making a gift to the Botanical Gardens you can help us nourish our historic conservatory as we flourish into the future.
Unrestricted gifts to the Botanical Gardens’ Annual Fund are essential to our financial strength and longevity. Annual Fund donations are used to maintain our facilities and operations, support educational programming, and to provide restoration and preservation of our horticulture collection.
