Michigan Botanical Foundation

The Michigan Botanical Foundation was created to enable individuals, groups, companies to make donations and arrange bequests in support of botanical activities in Michigan.   The Michigan Botanical Foundation is fully accepted by the I.R.S. as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt foundation.  Donors can claim a full tax deduction for any contribution.

The purpose of the Michigan Botanical Foundation is to provide support for Michigan botanical research, educational publications and related activities that enhance the knowledge and preservation of Michigan's flora.

There are two categories within the Michigan Botanical Foundation to which donations may be applied- the general fund and the Isobel Dickinson fund.
