When you make a gift, do you visualize the end recipient of your goodness when making your donation? Do you realize the individual lives you’re touching, and the people who directly benefit from your generosity?
Take Ralph, for example, after he received the Gardener of the Year Award. With tears streaming down his face he told us, “I never thought that I could do this. I never knew a tomato plant could grow from this tiny seed. I never thought I’d be here!” Supporters, just like you, helped cultivate a fresh, new life interest for Ralph and our other community gardeners.
Our board members are so excited about cultivating positive impact in our community, that they decided to match each gift made to this campaign, up to $45,000. A gift can help to:
CULTIVATE a new love for nature in young visitors.
CULTIVATE new friendships between two visitors on a Community Day.
CULTIVATE budding romance between folks walking through our gardens on a first date.
CULTIVATE a new holiday tradition in a young family taking photos at Conservatory Aglow.
CULTIVATE a healthy new diet in a visitor to our free Wednesday Farmers Markets.
CULTIVATE bright minds in our Kids Camps, who feel both immediate affinity for nature and often go on to have a lifelong appreciation for the great outdoors.
CULTIVATE awe and wonder in a child splashing in our Sandstone Creek and learning about the water cycle for the first time at our Learning Pavilion in the Children’s Garden.
CULTIVATE a social outing for seniors visiting the Conservatory on a group tour—while you didn’t organize the visit, your gift provides the space to make these late-in-life memories possible.
What will you cultivate?
