Toronto Botanical Garden relies on the support of individuals, corporations and foundations to maintain and operate the gardens and to offer an engaging botanical and cultural experience that enriches the lives of its citizens. Collectively, we are able to educate over 6,000 children and 10,000 adults every year on important environmental and horticultural issues that affect our community.
Over 95% of our operating budget is self-generated through course revenues, membership fees, special events and through the generous support of many donors.
A donation of any amount is a greatly appreciated and goes to support the many wonderful programs and gardens at the TBG. All donations are acknowledged and donations over $10 receive a charitable tax receipt for the full amount.
Celebratory and In Memoriam Gifts
Celebrating a Special Occasion? Here’s a wonderful way to acknowledge the joy of a birthday, wedding, anniversary, graduation or other special occasion.

Gifts of Stock
It’s easy to make a donation of securities to Toronto Botanical Garden, which is a registered educational charity, and beneficial to you as well as us. Federal budget changes in 2006 have made donations of appreciated publicly-listed securities exempt from capital gains tax. Gifts of shares, bills, warrants, mutual funds, and futures listed on stock all qualify for this exemption. The TBG will issue a charitable tax receipt for the full appreciated value of your gift, based on the closing trading price on the day it is received. Your donation will help support the TBG gardens, along with the educational and community-focused programs and activities that make the TBG Toronto’s dynamic horticultural hub .
