Giving Tuesday – November 27, 2018 – is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

To build the SEED Classroom for Black Hill Nature Programs.
A SEED classroom is a sustainable, net-zero energy, net-zero water, non-toxic, modular learning space built to the Living Building Challenge standards. Naturalist staff will be able to incorporate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) curriculum into programming based on the functions of the classroom. The structure is much more than a mere building, it is a teaching tool with the power to educate and inspire both children and adults! DONATE NOW!
To send a child to camp with the Marye Wells-Harley Dream Camp Scholarship.
To honor Marye Wells-Harley’s legacy to parks and recreation in our area, The Marye Wells-Harley Dream Camp Scholarship Fund was created to provide scholarships for children and teens to attend the Montgomery Parks’ summer camp of their choice. Summer camp provides fun and life-changing experiences to area children, but due to financial constraints, some children are sidelined. This Fund provides Montgomery County families facing financial challenges the opportunity to give their children the emorable experience of summer camp. DONATE NOW!
To celebrate Brookside Gardens’ 50th anniversary.
Brookside Gardens is Montgomery Parks’ award-winning, 50-acre premier horticultural display garden located in Wheaton, MD. Now approaching its 50th anniversary, help us celebrate another 50 years of creative garden displays that inspire and inform the community. DONATE NOW!
