Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Connecticut Horticultural Society. With only two part-time employees, we rely heavily on the hands of dozens of helping volunteers to be able to offer a season of professional speakers, educational workshops, Spring Plant Sale & Auction, trips, biennial Symposium, and more.

Please consider adding your talents and time to the mix, whether on a one-time or ongoing basis. Your board of directors and fellow CT Hort members welcome your efforts and thank you in advance.

Continued vitality and excellence in the years ahead will depend in large part on the size of the Connecticut Horticultural Society’s endowment. Building a strong endowment requires a flow of funds from people who care about CT Hort’s future and wish to help ensure its well being. Planned gifts during life or bequests upon death will help continue the work of CT Hort.

Bequests need not be large, for it is the cumulative effect of many gifts that will ensure the Society’s future. There are many ways to make a planned gift. The best choice depends on individual circumstances. Some options to consider are lifetime donations, memorial gifts, gifts of appreciated securities or life insurance, gifts by will (bequests), and charitable remainder trusts.

To discuss making a gift, please contact Dick Kaminski, Treasurer.
