How you can help RCGA grow

$20:   provides supplies to teach children about gardening

$30:   covers a garden plot for someone in need

$50:   provides access to our educational class

$100: covers the cost of organizing a local cooking class

$500: supports building and maintenance at a local garden

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

There are several ways to donate. You can send a check payable to Roanoke Community Garden Association to RCGA at PO Box 4326, Roanoke VA 24015 . Or you can donate online through our secure online platform:

Sustainable Giving

If you want to become a sustainable donor, by scheduling a recurring monthly payment, just just click through to our donation portal and choose how often you’d like to have your payment withdrawn. 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.
