Year-End Giving

As 2020 draws to a close, we are reminded of a lesson that hit home hard this year, that nature and friends are profoundly important. When times are tough, a breath of fresh air and feeling seen by friends can make all the difference to get us through. Year-end is always an important time for us, but this year especially, we ask for your financial support with a goal of raising $25,000 to see the bonsai through the many challenges this year has presented. The bonsai are always here for you offering calm, patient beauty. Can you be there for them, too, in the spirit of friendship? Befriend a Bonsai today.


You can help connect people to nature today with your gift to Pacific Bonsai Museum. Your support of the Museum’s work to care for this premier collection will make a world of difference.
