The Montrose Botanical Society, the development arm of the Montrose Botanic Gardens is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All donations to the gardens are tax deductible. Your donation helps make it possible to keep our gardens open to the public for no charge.
Any donation equal to current membership levels will automatically provide an annual membership. All donations $500 or more annually will also have the option to receive an engraved Giving Brick to be placed in the Valley Garden Shavano patios.
You are also invited to make a one time donation to the Montrose Botanic Gardens. These funds will go toward general operating costs and will make a difference for generations to come!
The Valley Garden is getting closer to completion thanks to many in-kind and financial contributions. Recent additions are Cait’s Corner with a covered Stage & storage with upgraded electricity, rock slab bench, Russian Hawthorne tree, butterfly bushes and mini perennial gardens; evergreen trees, 2 striking Shavano Plaza curved walls constructed from re-purposed Shavano stones and newly completed Giving Patios. Our goal is to complete the Valley Garden plan with an expanded lawn area, pathways with seating, perennials, ornamental grass display, aromatic & sensory garden, and a Rose garden. Help us to completion by donating, buying a Giving Brick or supporting our upcoming Garden fundraising events.
