The beautiful Central Gardens of North Iowa is a result of financial donations, small and large, from many, many individuals, foundations, organizations and businesses. Here are some opportunities for you to help support the Gardens:
Money may be given through memberships, memorials for family or friends who have passed on, and honorariums for living friends or family members. There are naming opportunities through- out the Gardens for a fee set by the Board of Directors. Cash gifts may be given for the development and /or the maintenance of the Gardens. In-kind gifts may be given if approved by the Board of Directors.
Other ways of donating include giving directly to the Endowment Fund of the Gardens or to the Central Gardens of North Iowa Endowment Account with the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa. This way the earnings of the principal gift may be used for the operation of Central Gardens of North Iowa for many years into the future. (There are some very good tax breaks for individuals who give to the CGNI Endowment Account with the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa).

All donations and gifts are recognized in a variety of ways, including through our newsletter, on our web site, and, depending upon the level of the gift, on our donor wall at our main entrance.
