Coral Reef Restoration
Donations help reverse the endangered status of the elkhorn and staghorn coral in Key Largo, Florida.
To contribute directly to the operating funds, please contact our Treasurer, Jana Walling.
Since launching a partnership with the U.S. Forest Service in 2004, National Garden Clubs Inc. (NGC) and its various affiliates across the country have collected well over $100,000 on the local and state level for the U.S. Forest Service's well-known Penny Pines program, which is dedicated to replanting damaged forested areas. These funds have benefitted 80 national forests in 42 states.
NGC requests that donations be made in multiples of $68. This was the cost of planting 10 acres when the Penny Pines program was first started in California in 1941 as a statewide conservation program, and has been retained as a minimum donation through the years.
Please contact Carolyn Schaag to learn more about planned giving.

Donations of $1000 or more are acknowledged at the state convention. Contributors of $20,000 or more will have a scholarship named in their honor.
