Kids Garden Community Sponsor
In 2021, KidsGardening launched a game-changing new initiative to grow young gardeners. In order to inspire, inform, educate, and build a stronger nationwide community of youth garden educators, KidsGardening developed a collaborative online platform called The Kids Garden Community. The goal of the Community is to provide a central location for direct networking for teachers, parents and other garden educators.
Levels range from $5,000 - $30,000+. More on community sponsorship.
Youth Garden Grant Sponsorship
KidsGardening’s Youth Garden Grant is the oldest and longest running award of its kind. This award is designed to build capacity for school and youth educational garden projects that enhance the quality of life for students and their communities. The award is open to any nonprofit, public or private school, or youth program in the United States planning a new garden program or expanding an established one that serves at least 15 youth between the ages of 3 and 18. We have several levels of sponsorship from our lead "Sunshine" level sponsor to "Seed Money" and product sponsors.
Levels range from $500 -$10,000. Ask us about product donation!
These yearly contests engage our audience in sharing fun and authentic images. Each contest runs for one month and is promoted via web, email, and social. Contests typically see well over 500 entries, and thousands of views of the contest landing page. Prizes can feature your company’s products or services, or simply be a fun way to reach our audience.
Kids Garden Month
KidsGardening celebrates Kids Garden Month throughout the month of April. This is an opportunity to lift up the powerful impact gardens have on kids’ lives. All month long, KidsGardening interacts with its audience of parents, educators, and caregivers via email, social media, and website to encourage children’s participation in the KidsGarden Month contest around a specific theme.
Two levels of sponsorship are available. Pollinator Level at $5,000 or Sunshine Level at $10,000 includes. Contact us for more details!
Youth Garden Installations
We have nearly 40 years of experience designing and installing high impact, fun, and sustainable youth gardens across the country. Our expertise, guidance, and streamlined sponsorship packages ensure efficient communication and collaboration, making it easy for both your organization and a given school, educational facility, or youth center to fully engage in the exciting process of creating a youth garden. KidsGardening offers a robust range of garden installation services. From organizations looking to make an impact in their community through a one-off event, to corporations interested in annual volunteer initiatives, we can design, and project manage a garden installation at the location of your choosing, for youth from preschool to high school.
Sponsorship starts at $20,000. We would love to share some past examples with you.
Custom Grant Program
KidsGardening launched the first youth garden grant in the country in 1982. Since then, we have awarded tens of thousands of youth garden programs across the country with funds and supplies needed to get more kids growing through the garden. Over the years we have worked with a number of corporate partners to administer high impact grant programs that deliver all of the benefits of gardening—including growing a new generation of gardeners—while driving our audience to the brand and helping position them as socially and environmentally responsible. KidsGardening has a trusted team of experts with deep experience designing and administering garden grant programs that deliver life-changing benefits to kids and their communities. Instead of developing prescriptive programs, we design grant programs that allow educators to think outside the box about how they can design impactful locally appropriate programs.
Sponsorship ranges from $20,000 - $50,000, depending on size and reach of the grant program.
