Tucson Garden Club will contribute to the AFGC Life Membership Fund. This benefits students needing help in attending college and also helps get AFGC’s name out in the community.  We also support the AFGC President's Project.

Local

Tucson Garden Club gives a $1,000.00 scholarship locally each year. Applications are sought from students in the field of horticulture and related subjects. It benefits the students and helps get Tucson Garden Club’s name known in the community.

We give a donation of $100 to Desert Survivors every year. It benefits their workers with disabilites program and gets Tucson Garden Club’s name known in the community.
