Be a Part of Life Lab's Giving Garden
We know that garden-based learning is important to you. Like a garden, Life Lab needs pollinators to help us grow our programs. Please share our work with friends and family and donate as you are able to our Healthy Futures Giving Garden.
Funds raised reflect individual giving, grants, sponsorships, and earned income.
The impact of the COVID health crisis has been significant for so many people and organizations, including Life Lab. We have canceled or postponed all of our in-person events, workshops, field trips, tours, and usual Partner Schools programs, and the UCSC Farm, including our Garden Classroom and office, remain closed to the public. Amid these significant challenges, we have found wonderful seeds of growth for Life Lab. Our team is using the gift of time from canceled programs to develop new ways to share our many resources virtually, and we are expanding our support for Pajaro Valley schools as they endeavor to meet the new needs of their students and teachers. We’re also focusing on weaving justice and equity more deeply into all of our work, and on refining our program strategies for even greater impacts when we reemerge from COVID-restricted life.
If you are a Life Lab donor, please check with your workplace to see if they have a gift matching program. Many employers love to support their team’s favorite charities and will double your donation!
Does your company have a community giving program? If so, let them know about Life Lab and suggest that they support us, too! Many companies have gift or grant programs, and they often encourage employees to recommend an organization that inspires them. We can provide you with all the information you need for a nomination form. Just contact Nikki@lifelab.org.
We welcome gifts of non-cash assets, and you may find that they provide you with additional tax benefits, especially for appreciated stock and real estate. To transfer shares of securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds), provide this Life Lab account information to your brokerage:

Honoring Life Lab’s long-term impacts for children, educators and the communities we support through a legacy gift is a wonderful way to sustain our work for many years to come.

We are also happy to discuss charitable trust opportunities with you.
Do you have friends or family members who are looking for an effective and inspiring organization to support? Or maybe you know someone who works at a foundation, or whose company donates to nonprofits each year? The more you tell people about our work growing healthy, inspired children, the better!
