We are fortunate to be one of a few counties staffed by a full-time dedicated WSU Master Gardener Program Coordinator with signficant funding provided by our foundation.

Contribute to the Clark County Master Gardener Endowment fund
The Clark County Master Gardener Endowment fund is a permanent investment that will support the program in perpetuity. A portion of the fund is available for the program to use in funding educational activities each year, while the majority of the fund is invested for long term growth. Each donation helps to grow this fund and support our long term financial sustainability.
The Clark County Master Gardener Endowment fund was established in 2008 with a generous donation from the foundation. The foundation donates funds to the endowment each year in addition to offering matching funds to encourage individual donations. The foundation has donated more than $148,000 to this endowment since it began.
The Master Gardener program is able to use up to 4% of the fund’s 36 month average market value each year to support workshops and other educational projects.
