Many Ways to Donate Your Time and Money

The Master Gardener Foundation of King County is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, incorporated at the state and county level. In collaboration with the WSU Extension King County Master Gardener program, our primary purpose is to fundraise to support the program and to advocate for support from King County and philanthropic donors. These contributions help operate our public demonstration gardens, our diagnostic plant clinics, and provide low-cost workshops and programs that teach environmentally sustainable gardening in Western Washington.

Your donations support the operation of over three dozen plant advice clinics; the maintenance for a dozen demonstration and outreach gardens; youth gardening programs and numerous other Master Gardener projects throughout King County. These ongoing donations help Master Gardeners extend their reach to home gardeners in our urban and rural areas in new areas, new locations, and enable us to provide even more useful horticultural programs online as needed. As King County grows, so does the need for the help from our Master Gardener community. Please consider a donation today.
