Supporting Core Programs

Your tax-deductible gifts to the Annual Fund support the Botanical Garden's core programs and operations. Your donation supports this beautiful Garden, hundreds of educational programs and important conservation efforts.

For additional information on these or other giving opportunities, please contact our Development Department at (415) 661-1316 ext. 302 or


Strybing Circle Gifts

Join our premier circle of donors who provide the financial foundation for the Garden Society's important work in conservation education. Donors who give $1,000 or more to the Annual Fund are included in the Strybing Circle with benefits such as invitations to private tours and events, acknowledgement on the donor wall, in The Leaflet, and the Annual Report.


Matching Gifts

Ever wish you could make your gift dollars go farther? You can – through your company's matching gift program. Thousands of companies, small and large, have matching gift programs which double or even triple individual, tax-deductible contributions made by their employees. Your employer may be one of them.

The process is simple: ask your employer if your company participates in a matching gift program. If so, obtain a matching gift form from your personnel office or matching gift coordinator, fill it out completely and send it along with your contribution to:
