Gifts and Memorials
The Society, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, welcomes donations and memorial gifts to further the preservation and enjoyment of Iowa’s native flora. Contributions and inquiries should be addressed to the INPS Treasurer.
Memorial gifts are a fitting way to recognize someone who loved native plants. Such funds will be used to support the INPS Grant Program, educational efforts, endowment, or an initiative of the family’s choice. Thus far memorials have been established in memory of Anna Gardner and Janet Christensen.
