Double Your 2019 Gift with Our Seed Ark Challenge

An anonymous donor will match your gift to the Seed Ark Endowment Fund to permanently bank the seeds of all of New England’s rare and endangered plants by 2020. This generous donor already has pledged up to half of the $1,000,000 we need. Now we need your help to raise the other $500,000 by the end of December. Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar!  Click here to donate now.
