Interested in other ways that you can be a part of our success?
Learn more about our opportunities and programs for matching gifts, planned giving, and other ways to support our mission to save and share gardens.
- Gifts of Appreciated Securities
- The Garden Conservancy accepts gifts of appreciated securities, which are sold upon receipt to support our Preservation Program, Open Days events, and education programs. A gift of stock provides significant benefits to the donor, including charitable tax deduction and savings on capital gains taxes.
To make a gift of appreciated stock, please contact Bridget Connors, Director of Membership and Annual Giving.
- Planned Giving
- Our members share a vision of the importance of gardens and their preservation. Some have demonstrated their passion for gardens by ensuring the Conservancy’s future through a bequest or other planned gift. We would be pleased to talk with you about developing an appropriate gift strategy and encourage you to contact us for more information about planned giving opportunities.
For more information, please contact Sarah Parker, Director of Development.
- Corporate and Foundation Giving
- Corporate and Foundation grants and sponsorships provide essential support toward our mission.
General support grants allow us to allocate resources where the organization most needs them. Gifts from corporations and foundations can also be directed to provide major support to one or more of our core activities: preservation and interpretation of significant gardens across the country; Our Open Days public outreach Program which reaches tens of thousands of people across the country each year; and educational programming including lectures, expert-led tours and demonstrations, and conferences to support and strengthen the field of garden preservation.
- Matching gifts
- Your contribution may result in additional support for the Garden Conservancy, as many companies match gifts made by their employees. Please contact your employer to obtain the necessary forms and submit them along with your contribution, and we’ll take care of the rest!
