Annual Fund

Giving an unrestricted gift to the Annual Fund, helps strengthen the programs and Overview-Graphichorticultural mission of The Gardens.

Gifts of all sizes can contribute to our continued growth and vitality:

* $1,000 pays for the flowers and herbs in Courtyard.

* $500 purchases needed equipment for the Gardeners.

* $250 provides one week of fertilizer and seeds for the Gardens.

* $200 covers the cost of one week’s utilities.

* $100 could replace a weather damaged tree.

* $75 could cover the cost for students to attend a workshop in the Gardens.

And when gifts assist with these ongoing needs, we can continue to provide educational programs for more than 2,000 children each year, conduct research, and cultivate collections of plants specially selected to thrive in the Outer Banks region.
