Volunteers from Friends of MUN Botanical Garden Inc (FOG), the Newfoundland Horticultural Society (NHS), and MUN Botanical Garden (the Garden), organize these annual fundraising events. Net proceeds from Mystery Garden Tours are used by these not-for-profit organizations for specific projects.
For example, for the past six events, FOG funds are allocated towards interior upgrades required to repurpose the registered heritage building formerly used as a carriage house by the Squires family on Mt Scio Road, St. John's. In recent years, the Garden has used its share to expand its pollinator programming and exhibits and a portion of NHS funds has also been directed towards the Garden’s pollinator projects. NHS has used the balance of its share of event funds for society specific projects such as a new website, upgrades to communications equipment and programming for its members.
