A Generosity Movement!

Giving Tuesday is a global movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Created in 2012, it is a day that encourages people to do good. It’s a simple idea: whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give.

Burpee's Giving Tuesday is starting early this year to give our donors more time.  We are running the campaign from November 10th to December 2nd. 

Will you help us reach our $10,000 matching goal? 


Help Burpee Thrive
Burpee Pushes Forward!

COVID-19 has hit the museums in our community hard.  Burpee responded with virtual learning and gave thousands of school children free spring virtual field trips, online collaborative learning, and "to go" science kits for community families.  

With decreased visitors, decreased opportunities for classes and events, Burpee's income in 2020 was impacted.  Each gift you give, helps Burpee continue our mission, and ensure our resources are available to the community.

TODAY, your impact is DOUBLED: each gift is matched dollar for dollar up to our $10,000 goal. Help us secure over $10,000 in matching challenge pledges and reach our goal of over 300 individual donors today!
