2021 Annual Appeal
Please join us to raise $60,000 to help the Garden continue to serve the community, a cultural and recreational community asset that West Virginians can enjoy and be proud to share!
The Garden is in the midst of a great transformation. With the help of several large grants, we have created parking for the planned visitors center, resurfaced a portion of the Reservoir Loop Trail, and installed a new irrigation system to help improve the health of our plant collections. The additions of the Children’s Adventure Garden and the Hazel Ruby McQuain Event Center will further our mission, create lifelong memories, and greatly enhance the community.
All of these great infrastructure improvements are essential to the growth of the Garden, but we rely on your financial support for operational costs that keep the Garden looking great and open to the public without admission charge. With expanded programming and infrastructure comes added costs, staffing requirements, and insurance needs. During this lengthy pandemic, we’ve had to cancel many fundraising events, but you’ve always come through for us. Your assistance will enable us to keep the Garden running smoothly so we can serve the community even better in 2022.
Please consider a charitable contribution to the West Virginia Botanic Garden before December 31, 2021. Your tax-deductible gift is vital to creating learning experiences, inspiring families, and improving the well-being of the community through the natural environment and culturally enriching experiences.
