Help Nurture Lotusland!

Gifts for the Garden – Annual Appeal

Each year at this time, Lotusland appeals to its members and friends to help us sustain and grow our thriving garden. We rely on donations to keep the garden open and to secure this extraordinary legacy as a treasured community resource and wonderful outdoor classroom.

Gifts of Stocks or Securities

Making a gift of securities or mutual funds offers you the chance to support Lotusland while realizing important benefits for yourself. By donating appreciated stock you may:

  • Claim a charitable deduction equal to the stock’s fair market value on the day you give it away.
  • Avoid paying capital gains tax.

Please instruct your broker to notify Rebecca Anderson, Executive Director at 805.969.3767 of your transaction.
