Ways To Contribute
When you donate to MSHS, you demonstrate your belief that gardening builds better lives and stronger communities.
Because of your gifts:
Project leaders from schools, day care facilities, Habitat for Humanity, food shelves, summer youth programs, churches, senior high rises, group home for the disabled and more have garden boxes, soil and edible plants through our Garden-in-a-Box program so that low-income kids, families and individuals can learn to garden and grow their own food.
MSHS programs Northern Gardener magazine, Minnesota Green and Garden-in-a-Box are dependant on supporters like you. Your gift above membership and subscription dues today helps MSHS educate and encourage the gardeners of this generation and the next.
Thank you for your support!

Make a gift of stock or other securities. You can support MSHS with a gift of appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares. By giving securities that you have held for more than one year, you can take a tax deduction for the full market value of the gift, and avoid capital gains taxes. To get the maximum benefit for you and MSHS, the security should be transferred, not sold. But please check with your tax or legal advisor to confirm the anticipated tax benefits.
