You can support the Garden in many ways. Your tax-deductible gift helps us implement programs, maintain plant collections and provide many other activities at the Garden. We accept donations online, by check made out to UGA Foundation, via stock transfer and by numerous other means listed below:
Your gift, large or small, offsets the myriad of expenses involved in operating a modern botanical garden—from general operating expenses to special projects. Annual Fund gifts may be made at any time during the year. Donors who qualify for our Annual Fund Giving Societies receive special recognition in the Garden News and the Annual Report. Checks should be made payable to the UGA Foundation, a tax-deductible organization, and mailed to the State Botanical Garden.
Giving to our Conservation Annual fund supports the Garen's Conservation efforts including our Native Plant Initiative.
Leave a mark on the Garden. Memorials, tributes and other Named Gift opportunities are available throughout the State Botanical Garden. Your gift in the Garden will be remembered with a plaque recognizing the honoree and donor. Gifts range from benches and trees to statues and garden sections. Undesignated gifts support a wide range of Garden needs.
You can leave a legacy at the Garden through a planned gift in your will or estate plans. A planned gift may enable you to make a larger gift than you thought possible. There are favorable financial and tax benefits as well.
Many corporations match charitable gifts made by employees, board members, retired employees and spouses. Matching gifts enable you to double or even triple your gift to the State Botanical Garden. Search our online database to see if your employer or your spouse's employer has a matching gift program, or contact your company's community relations, human resources or personnel office to obtain the appropriate form. Forward the information to us, and we'll do the rest.
