Every gift plants a seed of resilience

The American Public Gardens Association connects, protects and champions the work of public gardens, working daily to provide our Members with the resources they want and need to make their gardens an indispensable part of their community…and of our world.

Never has the need been greater to connect people with the healing power of plants. Whether it's getting garden staff back to work, visitors back in the garden, or public gardens thriving again, we invite you to consider the impact your gift will have on another person in our industry.

Here are the ways you can make an impact right now

1) GROW Public Gardens

The Association's annual event, Go Public Gardens Days, is May 7-16, 2021 and the GROW Public Gardens campaign that accompanies it is designed to raise money for both the Association and member gardens. Our partner PlantSnap is offering a free Pro upgrade of their app for qualified donations of $20 or more.

2) Garden Scholars

Your one-time or recurring gift will be applied towards scholarships to enable an entry level, early-- or mid-career professional an opportunity to network, be inspired by new ideas, and advance their skills by covering registration and travel costs to attend one of the Association’s regional symposia or a future Annual Conference.

3) Annual Fund with NEW Honoree Option

This unrestricted fund fuels the Association's innovation year-round,. With these funds we stay flexible to be able to react to and, when possible, anticipate our members' needs for programs, resources, support, and connection. 

WANT TO HONOR SOMEONE? We've now added an HONOREE section to this fund to give you the opportunity to make this gift in honor or memory of someone who has made an impact on your in your career or life.

4) Association Endowment Fund and Legacy Fund

You’re making your mark on your garden, and your visitors, every day. Now consider an investment that will amplify your impact across our entire industry.
