WE DID IT!

Thank you! Thank you for your Annual Appeal Campaign Support! We are grateful beyond words.

This year proved most unusual for raising funds in support of operating expenses, therefore, our Annual Appeal Campaign took on greater significance. We appreciate the broad support from our community as a statement of belief in our mission, our relevance and importance to our community.

From early October through late January 209 donors contributed $154,137.55 to Gamble Garden’s Annual Appeal Campaign.Be assured every dollar will be prudently expended to enhance the garden, plan interesting virtual educational offerings and plan hybrid funding events as we remain focused navigating continued Covid challenges.

$120,637 $154,137 raised toward our $125,000 goal

Many thanks to the four donors who made $5,000 donations as we reached $25,000, $50,000, $75,000 and $100,000 , and to the donor who made a significant gift when we raised $125,000.

"What Gamble means to me"

“With our long history in Palo Alto, Gamble Garden has played a role in many peoples’ lives, And especially these last few months, our garden has been a refuge to so many.

This summer, We asked our community “What does Gamble mean to me” and we have received many heartwarming responses. It’s my privilege to share some with you.

We will continue to gather responses to “What does Gamble mean to Me” throughout the fall. I invite you to send your response to my email address, sarah@gamblegarden.org.

Thank you
