Let's work together to bring beautiful gardens
to southern Delaware.
The Delaware Botanic Gardens has made significant progress because of the generosity of numerous donors and founding members. For the Open the Garden Gates campaign, donations of all sizes are needed:
- One-time gifts to help the garden buy plants, trees, and other needed items
- Pledges paid monthly, quarterly, semiannually, or annually over several years
- Gifts in honor or in memory of a family member or a friend
- Naming opportunities for various features of the garden
- Contributions that advertise a business’s community support
Donations are an excellent way to give back to your community and support public programs and the operational expenses of the Delaware Botanic Gardens. More are needed to assist the development and construction of this first public botanic garden on southern Delmarva. We need your help for a garden to grow—more so now than any other time.
The Delaware Botanic Gardens, Inc., EIN 32-1371538,

All or part of your gift may be deductible as a charitable contribution.
