Funding NJHA

NJHA is financed through voluntary contributions from corporations, associations, agencies, and individuals interested in youth and horticulture. New donors are needed to broaden the base of support, to continue and expand services to present members, and to increase publicity and future growth. Youth, leaders, and alumni are encouraged to make contributions to help cover program and operating costs. All contributions are tax deductible under IRs status 501 (c). Checks should be made out to the National Junior Horticultural Foundation. How to donate. For further information on where to send donations, please contact the NJHA Executive Secretary:
