Tax Deductibility


Society membership, Affiliated membership and subscription to Northern Gardener magazine do not include a tax-deductible donation to MSHS. After the cost of the magazine, garden show tickets and other member benefits, we have determined that the materials received exceed the dollar amount paid and cannot be counted as a donation. Donations beyond your membership dues qualify as a tax-deductible gift.

Donations Above Membership

MSHS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Please consult your tax professional to confirm.

In-Kind Donations

Donations of plants, tools, seeds and items to our Garden Gala provide important support to MSHS programs. IRS regulations prohibit charitable organizations from assigning a monetary value to in-kind donations. Please consult your tax professional.
