Since opening its doors in 1999, Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden has prided itself on encouraging all who visit to become partners in the process of appreciating and preserving the natural beauty of our region. The Garden is proud to be a nonprofit organization that is funded and maintained by members of the community for the benefit of the community.

Help Our Garden Grow:
Give to the Annual Fund

Less than half the Garden's budget is funded by membership dues, which is why our Annual Fund is such a necessary part in helping to develop our Garden by covering the rest of our operating costs. Your gifts to the Annual Fund allow our staff and dedicated volunteers to maintain our stunning horticultural displays, hold classes that inspire a love of nature’s beauty in so many, and continue forward in making our master plan for the garden a reality. Make a general contribution today to inspire future generations of nature lovers and help a regional asset to grow and flourish!

Here are just some of the potential impacts of your contributions:

$25 - Supplies two bags of soil to help our flowers grow

$50 - Purchases pruners so our horticultural staff can keep our Garden beautiful

$120 - Supports the purchase, planting, and maintenance of a dozen flower bulbs

$250 – Energizes plantings by providing fertilizer for the gardens and lawns in spring and fall.

$415 - Provides a scholarship to one Title 1 school class that will fully cover a field trip to the Garden

$1000 – Maintains our stunning annual displays that are ever growing and changing

Make a one-time gift or break your gift into monthly or quarterly installments!
