San Diego Botanic Garden

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I wanted to take a moment to express our thanks to you for helping to keep our big, beautiful Garden going and growing!

In 2019, your financial support has allowed us to:

  1. Complete the Dickinson Family Education Conservatory, where our new Botanic Wonderland holiday event will be held this year!
  2. Delight more than 180,000 visitors from all over the world who came to visit our 5,000 plant species from around the planet!
  3. Educate more than 8000 children from local schools, including 650 Title One students, many of whom have never been to the Garden before!
  4. Preserve our botanic heritage and work together with other conservation-minded organizations – including Salk Institute – to ensure the Garden will be available for generations to come!
  5. Continue to ‘inspire people of all ages to connect with plants and nature!’

And perhaps most exciting, San Diego Botanic Garden was recognized as one of the Top 10 Botanical Gardens in North America by USA Today/10 Best Readers’ Choice Travel Awards!

None of this would have been possible without donations from generous individuals like you. And for that we are extremely grateful.

Now, as we look toward 2020, we hope we can continue to count on your support. Our Board of Directors has offered a very generous challenge - They will match every gift, dollar for dollar, up to $25,000. So, as you begin to consider your year-end giving, don’t let this opportunity to double your impact slip away. Renew your gift to the San Diego Botanic Garden today!
