Celebrating the EarthWays Center

The EarthWays Center IS sustainability. Every day, we work to help even more people across St. Louis recycle, be more energy efficient, and increase biodiversity in your own backyards. As the Garden's sustainability division, we want everyone to understand the links between our behavior and the health of our living Earth.

What does Give STL Day mean for the Garden?

Give STL Day is a 24-hour, online giving event organized by the Greater St. Louis Community Foundation to grow philanthropy in the St. Louis metropolitan area. The Missouri Botanical Garden is proud to be one of 900 organizations participating in Give STL Day. All donations to the Garden through on May 3 will support general operations for our EarthWays Center. Help sustainability grow in our community!

What’s in it for you as a donor? 

Donations are fully tax-deductible. Special prizes and incentives throughout the day make each donation go even further. You could win Cardinal baseball tickets and gift cards to Bixby's and Cafe Madeline throughout the day! And you are supporting the work of amazing organizations across our community. Tell your friends about it!

Thanks to our matching gift donors!

Double the impact of your gift, thanks to our matching gift donors. The first $2,000 donated to support EarthWays on Give STL Day will be matched by Garrett Paper, Midwest EE Alliance, and Sitton Energy.
