During December Your Donation Can Grow!
Help Us Raise $4,000 in Our End of Year
Matching Gifts Campaign!
Thanks to Tanks Green Stuff for their incredible generosity!
Between now and December 31st, Tanks – a local Tucson business that produces organic compost from green waste that would otherwise go to the landfill – will graciously match gifts made to us, dollar for dollar, up to $2,000! This means that your contribution of $100 will be matched by $100, effectively doubling your support to $200. Our goal is to secure $2,000 in donations within the next 30 days, raising a total of $4,000 for our mission, programs, and the communities we serve!
As 2021 comes to a close, we have been blessed by the unwavering financial support of individuals such as you who have made this past year’s many accomplishments possible! A few highlights include:
Providing full scholarships and work assistance to dozens of gardeners, many who are refugees and those with limited financial resources, to grow and harvest fresh, healthy produce for the table
Through our Kids in Gardens program, introducing more than 225 elementary students and 54 adults to the magic of butterflies and pollinators and the important role these insects play in our busy lives
Establishing a new community garden – Pio Decimo – located in historic Barrio Santa Rosa across from the Pio Decimo Center
Collaborating with the Tucson Audubon Society to install nest boxes at 11 of our gardens to provide essential nesting habitat for screech owls and kestrels and ecologically-sound rodent control
Celebrating the more than 3,000 hours, valued at $85,620 and which would pay for several staff members, that our volunteers donated in vital services to strengthen our operations and programs
Raising more than $110,000 from foundations and philanthropic institutions to improve the health and productivity of our gardens, to acquire new state-of-the art technology for our staff, to underwrite our gardener scholarships, and to sustain and expand our garden education programs
Because donations and contributions provide more than 50 percent of our operating budget, your gift is vital to our continued success.
