Giving Tuesday – Virtual Day of Giving

November 29 All day

On November 29th, support the Zilker Botanical Garden Conservancy in our goal to raise $35,000! We have TWO matching challenges this year – donations will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000. 

If we surpass $10,000 – every dollar will be matched 2 to 1 up to $5,000! 

Giving Tuesday is an annual online opportunity to show gratitude for what we value each year. Generations of Austinites have nurtured the Zilker Botanical Garden and this year we ask you to continue to support the garden with a donation. 

Your gift, large or small, will support educational programming, a space for over 30 garden clubs to share their passion, and many community events to enjoy throughout the year. Your donation will be matched dollar for dollar up to $15.000! 

This year we have an opportunity to raise $35,000 through two generous matching challenges! Help us meet our goal and support one of Austin’s most cherished outdoor spaces.  

With your generosity, the Zilker Botanical Garden supports thousands of school children to explore the garden every year. Help us to meet our goal in order to continue to provide support for school groups and fund transportation services for Title 1 schools throughout Austin thus allowing these students to participate in the educational programming offered by the Zilker Botanical Garden.
