LET’S GET GOING IN 2020 

Dear Members: 

The DDBGS Board is excited about the progress that has been achieved in the planning of the Garden Expansion Project. Now, the Society needs your show of support for the Garden Expansion to make it a reality.

Our current fund-raising projects, such as the May Plant Sale, fund the Society’s regular activities and our work on the Educational Display Garden (EDG) at UNBC. Thus, we need new fundraising efforts to support the Botanical Garden. A group has started work on grant applications, but it will take some time before money will come in from those sources.

The Project Committee has been working with an architect and site planner and hopes to have initial site work to begin in Spring 2020. In order to accomplish this, it is necessary that we have some start-up funds. These funds will help pay for initial costs and will show membership support when we apply for grants and to major donors.

Therefore, the Board of Directors is launching a Membership Fundraising Campaign with a goal of $10,000. The funds raised will go directly to the Project Committee for their needs in 2020.

We are requesting donations of $100 from members, although any amount is appreciated. All donations of $20.00 and over will receive a tax receipt.

Please send cheques payable to the David Douglas Botanical Garden Society and mailed to PO Box 1305 Prince George, BC V2L 4V3 or go to our website http://ddbotgarden.bc.ca to donate online. 

This is a very exciting time for our Society, and we wish to thank you for your support of the Expansion Botanical Garden.

Please contact me at president@ddbotgarden.bc.ca if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Linda Naess

President, David Douglas Botanical Garden Society

A tax deductible receipt for any donation over $20.00 will be mailed to you.
