Capital campaign

The Delaware Center for Horticulture is growing greener.  The modern, green facility under construction is in harmony with our mission to educate, inspire and enrich communities through horticulture, and a $500,000 building maintenance endowment will provide a financial foundation to sustain our investment for years to come.


The improvements will increase the amount of collaborative and educational space; utilize and demonstrate energy efficiency, stormwater mitigation practices, and state-of-the-art green technology; improve public access as a valuable resource for the community. For more details, visit the Building Features page.


The support of many generous supporters has made it possible to start the work. The support of other generous donors like you will help complete the work. There are numerous ways to contribute to the Capital Campaign, including: one-time gifts, recurring gifts, Naming Opportunities, Memorial and Tribute gifts, Planned Giving, Matching Gifts, and Corporate Sponsorships.
