Donate

Donations we receive in the near future will nearly exclusively support the Flora App. So most donation information has been moved to “The Flora App” in the menu bar. 

But please note: We have received a challenge grant from the Mary Morton Parsons Foundation. They will match every dollar you donate until December of this year, to a maximum of $40,000. So you can double your giving.

Here’s more information about how the Flora Project is able to operate.

The Flora of Virginia Project is a team effort. In addition to staff and board members, the Flora team includes many supporters with many roles. The Flora Project has five official partners—the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, the Virginia Native Plant Society, the Virginia Academy of Science, the Virginia Botanical Associates, and Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden—whose cooperation has been and remains essential. 

Corporations and foundations give grants covering different portions of our work. Scientific and environmental organizations have backed us all the way. Many Virginia colleges and universities are involved, and the project’s advisory board is a who’s who of Virginia science.

But we receive no funding from the Commonwealth of Virginia or universities. 

Other than grants, we depend entirely on gifts from individuals. People are our lifeblood. Virginia’s plants are in good company. Thank you!
