What Your Gift Can Do

Gifts of every size have a major impact on our programs. Your investment makes a difference in the quality of the educational, research and community outreach experiences offered at the UW Botanic Gardens. Funding from the State of Washington only covers 31% of the cost of running our programs and taking care of our beautiful 330 acres. Therefore, we count on our visitors, friends and alumni to help support our efforts and continue to expand the services and classes we offer our students and the community.  Our continued success depends on your partnership.  

A gift to the UW Botanic Gardens Directors Fund provides flexible support for our Director to meet the most critical needs within our programs as well as respond to emerging opportunities.
