You are vital to the Center’s future

Like a butterfly to a bloom, you and the Wildflower Center are a natural pairing. And right now, we need your help. 

Over the past 16 months, we have faced many challenges, from an unprecedented closure that cost $1.2 million in lost revenue to a 10% reduction in staff. We also incurred expenses related to February’s historic storm. To offset these challenges and prepare for the future, we have set a $100,000 fundraising goal — $50,000 in gifts from supporters like you, plus a $50,000 matching fund — to reach by Aug. 27.

Through this challenging time, we hope you found respite, solace, and a welcome escape while visiting the Center in person or online. Now, we’re asking for your gift to help strengthen the Center’s future, knowing our matching fund will double its impact.

Your gift will ensure the Wildflower Center can host thousands of children on eagerly awaited field trips this fall, offer engaging events and programs, open our gardens to a wider audience, and resume daily garden tours. Please give today to help reach our goal.

You will be directed to the UT Austin giving page where the Wildflower Center will be preselected; from there, simply choose your giving option. Thank you!


Membership is another great way to support the Center.


The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is a self-supporting unit of The University of Texas at Austin and depends on the philanthropic support of members and donors. One hundred percent of your gift benefits the Wildflower Center directly.
