The Henry Shaw Fund:
Annual support for needs throughout the year. 

Named for the founder of the Missouri Botanical Garden, the Henry Shaw Fund is a vital component of the annual operating budget for the Garden, the Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House, and Shaw Nature Reserve.

Donations made to this annual fund provide general operating support to programs and projects as needed throughout the year.
