Become a Foundation Donor

The objectives of the Eastern Region Foundation are to support research grants, scholarships for horticulture students and internships in industry, public gardens and research institutions. The Foundation is committed to developing future leaders who will pioneer new directions in businesses and institutions involved in growing plants and expanding knowledge and appreciation of horticulture.

We have reached our initial goal of $250,000. In September 2018 we paid our first amounts to students so they could attend the IPPS-ER Conference in Delaware. In 2019, two scholarships of $2,000 were provided. Imagine helping someone starting their career in horticulture to feel the passion you feel about growing and studying plants! Imagine leaving a legacy to research some of the thornier problems facing horticulture! The best way to grow future horticulturists is to make a  'Seek and Share' donation today!
