The Missouri Botanical Garden encourages the solicitation and acceptance of gifts to the Garden for purposes that will help the Garden to further and fulfill its mission. The attached policies and guidelines govern acceptance of gifts made to the Garden or for the benefit of any of its programs or services.

The Garden encourages private support that will not encumber the Garden with gifts that may be restricted in a manner not in keeping with Garden’s mission or are likely to generate a disproportionate cost or obligation in relation to the benefit received. The Garden will accept gifts when there is an expectation the gift will ultimately benefit the Garden.
