How you can help RCGA grow



As a small non-profit, RCGA depends on donations to operate and especially to continue to grow and build community through opportunities for gardening, education, and sustainable living. Your donation – large or small – helps pay for operating costs, educational materials, gardening supplies, and staff.

$10 will help pay for water for a garden for a month

$30 pays for a garden plot for someone who is unable to afford the fee

$50 pays for an educational class to teach people how to garden

$100 pays for educational cooking classes

Our donors are a crucial part of the success of RCGA! Thank you!

There are several ways to donate. You can send a check to RCGA at PO Box 4326, Roanoke VA 24015 . Or you can donate online through one of our two online secure platforms (Click & Pledge or PayPal) by clicking one of the buttons below.


Sustainable Giving

If you want to become a sustainable donor, by scheduling a recurring monthly payment, just check the “make this payment recurring” box on either the PayPal or Click & Pledge form. Just $10 a month is helpful.


Matching gifts

Ask your employer if they do matching gifts. Many companies such as GE, Norfolk Southern, and UPS have matching gift programs where they match your gift up to a certain amount. Check with your employer and add RCGA as your charity.

Other ways to help

Go to AmazonSmile and choose RCGA as your charity of choice so when you shop RCGA receives a certain percentage of the sales amount.

Go to Kroger Community Rewards and create an account with your Kroger card, then choose RCGA as your designated organization using 82981 as your “community rewards number.” A certain percentage of your purchase amount will be donated to RCGA, at no cost to you!
