Donating to The Enabling Garden
The Guelph Enabling Garden runs completely on donations and grants, and every dollar we receive is put back into the operation, maintenance and programming of the garden. To ensure our programming remains free and accessible, we depend on the financial generosity of members and organizations. The Garden is governed by a Board of Directors, working committees and many dedicated volunteers.
If you are an individual wishing or an organization to make a donation, please get in touch with us to learn how you can get involved.
When guests and volunteers visit the Garden, they’ll notice the engraved bricks that line the serene pathways of the garden. These beautiful bricks are personalized with messages in honour of a loved one, to commemorate achievements, to profile local businesses, or to mark a special day. They are a concrete reminder of the people who help make the garden thrive. Purchasing a Brick is a great way to celebrate a special day or person, profiling your business, or honouring a loved one
It is through these Bricks that the Garden helps raise the necessary funds to ensure our programming remains free and accessible for all as well as to help expand the Garden for the future. The Buy-a-Brick Campaign is a great way to donate and all funds raised through the Buy-A-Brick campaign will go to support construction of this special garden.
