Support The Gardens 

The Gardens are vibrantly alive and beautifully maintained because of the participation of our numerous supporters, donors, and volunteers who are "Friends of The Gardens" -  and we are extremely grateful! 

The majority of The Gardens' budget comes from donations. This support is the lifeline of the K-State Gardens and is the backbone for its growth and success. Most of the Gardens' plantings, features and other necessary items were donated by various organizations, companies and individuals. Over 76 supporters have been welcomed into the Quinlan Society for donating $10,000 and above to The Gardens. Support also comes from our active volunteers who are instrumental in office and gardening activities. 

It will take time and continued support to reach The Gardens' goals. We are continuing to grow and we would like your help.

Please consider supporting The Gardens through a

donation  or  volunteering
