CMGA is a non profit 501(c)(3) organization. As the alumni organization for the CT Master Gardener program, our mission is
--To support the horticultural activities of Master Gardeners and Interns in providing outreach to the residents of Connecticut,
--To support the University of Connecticut Cooperative Extension System Master Gardener Programs and projects, and
--To foster communication, education, and esprit de corps among Master Gardeners.
We have tried hard to keep our dues reasonable and affordable, and we make very little (or breakeven) on our annual Symposium as a benefit to our members. This means that, with increasing costs, we are stretched to provide the outreach and scholarship dollars we are committed to spending. Outreach grants benefit numerous MG projects around the State, and scholarships provide funding for each MG class location every year. If you can, please donate to help support these important programs! All donations are tax deductible.
In 2015, we granted over $6,000 in outreach dollars to MG and MG Intern projects, $4,500 to the MG Programs at the Extension Offices, and $3,500 in scholarships to MG students. Make your tax deductible contribution using Paypal (we appreciate any donation!), or send it to us at:
PO Box 1784

Don't forget...if your company has a matching gift program (both active employees and retirees are often eligible), send us your completed form as well!
