How You Can Help

Although basic operational support for the OPGC is provided by the USDA-ARS and The Ohio State University, we depend on contributions from the industry and interested individuals for a variety of activities that help us fulfill our mission.

The OPGC Endowment Fund was established by the Floriculture and Nursery industry in 1999 to help support the mission of the OPGC. If you would like to make a difference via a monetary donation, we truly appreciate it. Additionally, under certain situations, we accept donation of plant materials (either seeds or plants) to become part of our collection of germplasm that is shared with other professionals and with the floriculture and nursery industry.
