The world has felt like a scary place the past few months. While many businesses around us closed, South Coast Botanic Garden remained open as a much-needed place of hope for our community.
Staying open has been no small feat. We acted swiftly and thoughtfully to implement solutions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the safety of staff and visitors, working under guidance from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.
While we remain open as a safe place for all, it certainly is no longer business as usual. Many of the Garden’s typical sources of funding — including public programs, classes, plant sales, festivals and event rentals — have all been put on hold. The Garden is losing an estimated $4,000 per day during this crisis — a hard hit for our small organization.
That is why we are asking for your help today. You can help us weather this storm! Can we count on your support of our 2020 Flourish Fund with a fully tax-deductible gift today?
Your gift of any amount will allow our beautiful Garden to flourish for years to come and continue to unite people through nature. We are grateful for your continued and generous support. Any amount you can contribute helps.
With deep appreciation,
Adrienne Lao Nakashima
