Help keep 6BC Garden beautiful – and further expand our services to the community - by making a generous financial donation.
6BC receives no regular funding from the city or other outside sources; the cost of running and maintaining the garden is entirely paid for by membership dues, usage donations and generous contributors.
Contributions are normally tax-deductible, but you should check with your tax adviser to make sure this applies to you. 6BC Botanical Garden, Inc. is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501.c3 non-profit corporation. Usually, your gift can benefit the garden most if it is unrestricted but we know there are times when you would like to honor or memorialize someone by supporting a particular garden project, and we will be happy to discuss this with you.
Please contact us with any questions you may have about contributing or how your donations are used.
We hope you'll also consider volunteering or becoming a member.

Give at the Garden
You may also contribute by cash or check while you are in the garden. There are two boxes for this purpose, located at either end of the grape arbor. We very much appreciate, and make every effort to monitor and account for such contributions, but suggest that donations of more than small amounts be made by mail or online to better ensure their security. If you wish us to acknowledge or give a receipt for your cash gifts, please attach your contact information to your donation.
Give In Kind
We also welcome in kind donations, especially party supplies (including food and beverages), garden tools and building supplies, fish and bird food.
Unfortunately, because of limited storage, we can only accept such contributions when we have a current need for them, so please contact us to discuss your planned donation.
