Donate to the Garden

Support the Garden

Along with support from the University of Alberta, the University of Alberta Botanic Garden relies on revenues from gate admissions, gift shop sales and special events, as well as contributions from the community through donations and sponsorships. 

Your donation makes a difference by supporting conservation, education and services to the public. There are many ways to support the Garden with your donation.

DBG Endowment Fund

A donation to the DBG Endowment Fund allows us to put the money where it’s needed most, supporting priority areas in programming, maintenance, upkeep and special projects.


The UABG has over 8,000 actively managed plants, but we are in constant need of expanding, acquiring, improving, replacing and enriching our plant collections. A donation to the Collections Fund directly supports these activities.

Green School

This award-winning environmental education programs provides a weeklong nature immersion experience for school-children in grades 4-8. Green School is made possible entirely through sponsor and donation support.

Commemorative Donations

When you honour or remember someone with a donation, you send two-way support: to the honoree or family of the remembered one, and to the Garden.
To discuss a Commemorative Donation, contact Carl Charest, General Manager at
