Memorial Donations and Planned Giving

Friends of Summerland Ornamental Gardens Sustaining Fund
The Friends Summerland Ornamental Gardens Sustaining Fund was set up to preserve, protect and enhance the work that the Friends of Summerland Ornamental Gardens is doing. It is administered by the Community Foundation of South Okanagan | Similkameen.

The fund was endowed with the vision to create a sustainable source of funding to ensure the Gardens can continue to flourish for future generations. The initial funds deposited will never be touched and the interest earned will be dedicated to fund the operation and projects of the Friends of Summerland Ornamental Gardens.

We encourage friends, supporters, and members of the Gardens and the community to consider making a donation to the our society's fund, officially called the "Friends of the Summerland Research Station Gardens Society Sustaining Fund."

By contributing to this fund you will support the long term sustainability of the Summerland Ornamental Gardens, which showcases the importance of ornamental horticulture, natural and man-made landscapes and heritage preservation in our communities.

The Community Foundation of the South Okanagan | Similkameen is dedicated to enriching the quality of life by connecting the generosity of people with evolving community needs.
