Sponsorship

Sponsorship

We would like to provide you with an opportunity to sponsor one of the Botanic Gardens fundraising events.  We welcome sponsorships from both individuals and businesses.  These sponsorships give you an opportunity to give back to your community and provide financial support to an outstanding community resource.  For individuals, donations to the Botanic Gardens through the LSU Foundation are tax-deductible. For businesses, event sponsorships not only provide tax benefits, but also exposure through presence at the event.  You have the opportunity to reach new potential customers and receive free publicity through media coverage and signage for the event. 

Sponsorship at the Botanic Gardens demonstrates an important commitment to the environment and to the conservation of plants and the natural world.  Fundraising from events at the Botanic Gardens are used to build our educational programs as well as improve and expand our garden offerings.

See our Sponsor Packet and contact Jenny Jackson at jljackson@agcenter.lsu.edu or (225) 763-3990 ext. 5 about sponsorship opportunities.
