The ASHS Endowment Fund was established in 1982 to support horticultural science and education. The Fund is intended to promote excellence in horticulture through student scholarships and other educational tools.
By donating to the Endowment Fund, you'll be helping ensure that the best and brightest students can become horticultural scientists.
Any individual, organization, or business interested in supporting horticultural science and education is invited to contribute. If you plan to make a contribution, check with your employer to see if matching funds are available.
