Annual Fund

Annual donations are essential to sustain the beauty of Red Butte Garden’s 100 acres of land and over 5,000 types of plants.

Education and Programs Donation

Each year, over 18,000 school children participate in our acclaimed educational outreach programs and school field trips. During the summer, children attend camps where they learn about bugs, cooking, prehistoric plants and many other exciting topics! First-graders across the state participate in our Grow Lab Program where they learn to plant and care for seeds in their own classrooms. We are also pleased to announce the continued development of the Botany Bin Program.
In addition, the Garden offers over 50 classes each year for adults and families.

Water Conservation Garden Donation

With a generous challenge grant from The Alternative Visions Fund, and the help of many donors, Red Butte Garden is able to build our new three-acre Water Conservation Garden. Construction began in April 2015 and will be completed mid-summer 2016. We are still accepting contributions to be used for educational materials, interpretive signage, and a Water Conservation Garden endowment fund.

Art in the Garden Society Donation

Red Butte Garden is an ideal, natural setting for sculpture, creating a connection with the beauty of living landscapes. Currently we are raising funds to go toward the purchase and installation of “Damara’s Gift,” a sculpture created by artist Colour Maisch.

Conservation Donation

At Red Butte Garden, our conservation team works to protect the rare flora of Utah and the Intermountain West. Your gift helps the Garden continue its efforts to protect endangered plants throughout the region.
