Each pass is only valid for general admission for one person; special admission rate events, exhibits or attractions do not apply. We will fulfill one donation request per organization, per year.

What is the value of the Garden's donation?

The total for the four passes is valued up to $48 ($12 value per pass).

Can organizations publish the Garden's name as a donor?

No. The donation of these passes does not constitute the endorsement of an organization, sponsorship of any event or the right to use the Missouri Botanical Garden’s name on any printed (advertising, marketing, etc.) materials. No goods or services will be provided in exchange for this donation.

Should organizations send a confirmation letter?

In the spirit of conservation, we request that you do not send a written letter of thanks, acknowledgement or receipt.
