Flora of Virginia Project: Support

The Flora of Virginia Project is a team effort. In addition to staff and board members, the Flora team includes many supporters with many roles. The Flora Project has five official partners—the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, the Virginia Native Plant Society, the Virginia Academy of Science, the Virginia Botanical Associates, and Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden—whose cooperation has been and remains essential. Corporations and foundations give grants covering different portions of our work.

Scientific and environmental organizations have backed us all the way. Many Virginia colleges and universities are involved, and the project's advisory board is a who's who of Virginia science. But please keep in mind that we receive no funding from the Commonwealth of Virginia or from universities.

Other than grants, we depend entirely on gifts from individuals. People are our lifeblood. Explore this section to learn more, and to find out how you can donate to the Flora of Virginia. Virginia's plants are in good company.
