Make an Immediate Impact

Annual Donations

Annual contributions offer industry professionals, businesses, and organizations the opportunity to immediately put resources to work through Horticultural Research Institute. We are grateful for the support of our annual donors.

Your annual gift to our General Fund ensures continued research success and provides funds to use where the need is greatest: special programs, research in all areas, or administrative needs.

Your annual gift to a Named Fund likewise ensures continued success in facilitating research endeavors as well as communicating those research results to you. There are more than 170 named funds which offer diversity of choice for donors.

Interested in recognizing or memorializing a special person? HRI has several funds for that purpose:
  • Memorial Fund: donations of any amount in remembrance of a colleague, family member, or friend
  • Very Important Partners (VIP) Fund: contributions of $1000 or more to honor a business partner, influencers in your life, spouse, etc.
  • The Legacy Club Fund: contributions of $1000 or more to honor a child, grandchild, special person, etc.
