As one of the nation's few admission-free public gardens, donations are crucial to the success of our mission

Donations are crucial to the success of our mission: Building public gardens that beautify, educate, and enhance livability in our community.  The Durango Botanic Gardens is a 501(c)(3) non-profit.  All of our workers and staff are volunteers and our gardens are built and maintained largely with donations. Make a general donation or target your donation to popular legacy products (listed below). Tax regulations related to charitable deductions have changed, some of them favorable to nonprofit donations.  Donor Advised Funds and Qualified Charitable Deductions from your IRA are increasingly popular ways to donate to the gardens.
