We extend a warm welcome to individuals, groups, and businesses that want to help sustain Magnuson Children’s Garden! There are multiple ways you can contribute, and each is a vital ingredient in our success:

1) Donate to the garden:

  • The Seattle Parks Foundation is the Magnuson Children’s Garden non-profit fiscal sponsor, and manages any grant funding that we receive, as well as monetary donations made on our behalf.  We are very grateful for any amount you contribute to help fund our annual special events, plant and tool replacement, maintenance of the garden infrastructure, and more.  To make a contribution, visit our donation page on the website.  Thanks so much!


  • In-kind donations are also welcome! If you have extra garden tools, gloves, plants, art supplies, or other items that you think would benefit the Children’s Garden, please contact us at with a description of your donation, and include a photo if possible.  Please do not drop anything off at the Childen’s Garden without contacting us.  We’ll reply right away to let you know if we can accept it, and if so, arrange a time to pick it up or to meet you at the garden for delivery.  Thanks so much!


2) Participate in one of our Stewardship Events:

  • Typical stewardship tasks include simple garden maintenance such as weeding and mulching beds and paths, planting and fertilizing. We provide gloves, tools, and refreshments for stewardship volunteers at all of our events too!


  • King Co. Master Gardeners or other experienced gardeners are always on hand at each event to guide stewardship volunteers, answer your home gardening questions, and make all our events fun for novice gardeners as well as experienced ones!


  • For details on our upcoming stewardship opportunities, visit our calendar page. We can also arrange a custom stewardship event for your scout, campfire, community, or corporate group at no cost to you. For more info, contact us at
