Other Ways for You to Donate to WNPS
With your membership: When first joining and at renewals, please consider enrolling at a category of support above the basic membership. Funds received in this way go to essential operational needs.
Gift Memberships: Share the benefits, knowledge and fun of WNPS with another family member or friend and help WNPS grow too.
Endowment Fund: The purpose of the Washington Native Plant Society Endowment is to provide stable, long-term support for research, education, and conservation grants and projects. Grant and project funding provided from the WNPS Endowment is independent of the organization’s operating budget. Review endowment policy.
In Honor of and In Memoriam: Gifts honoring a family member, friend, a mentor, or an outstanding volunteer all enrich the WNPS endowment.
Workplace Giving: Many businesses and organizations conduct annual giving campaigns through United Way.
Donations of Goods: It’s best to discuss any intended gift of personal items with WNPS first. While your books, photos, office equipment, garden tools and even native plants might seem a beneficial match, sometimes WNPS cannot accommodate your wishes. If inopportune for WNPS, helpful suggestions may steer you to another organization that will appreciate your generosity.
Donations of Time and Talents: Being a WNPS volunteer is both a personal benefit and an opportunity to contribute your special skills. Please check our web site, newsletters, list serves, and with the office if you would like to get involved. The office needs helpers; weeds need removing; field trips need to be led; plants need propagating or salvaging; events need to be planned and staffed; schools appreciate volunteer educators; the newsletters want articles and artwork….just to name a few of the fun things that await your “Yes”.Estate Planning – Wills, Trusts & other Philanthropy:
