Giving to the Garden
The Garden is a not-for-profit charity as part of the university's inclusive community, which creates and inspires understanding, appreciation, and conservation of plants in gardens and natural areas to further Memorial's mission of research, education and engagement.
- Donations to the Botanical Garden can be submitted through Memorial University's Alumni Affairs website. You can make a donation online on their website by going here. Please be sure to indicate that you would like your generous donation to go to the Botanical Garden in the "Designation information" field. A donation can also be made in person at the visitor services desk or over the phone. Please refer to our hours of operation here. A tax receipt will be issued to you for your donation of $10 or more.
- The Botanical Garden education department has an ongoing wishlist through Amazon.ca. Items on the list may be used for a variety of programming. A tax receipt will be issued for a purchase over $10, when a receipt is provided. We will also happlily accept many of the items used, but a tax receipt for used items is not available at this time.
