Connecticut Nurserymen’s Foundation

About the Foundation

The Connecticut Nurserymen’s Foundation is an industry-sponsored endowment providing funds for scholarship and research in Connecticut.

The mission of the Connecticut Nurserymen’s Foundation is to raise capital for a tax-exempt endowment fund. The proceeds of this fund provide scholarships in the field of horticulture and support research to benefit the nursery industry.

The fund is built from donations, bequests and fund-raising functions. Scholarships and research grants are derived by interest and dividends engendered by the endowment fund. The principal of the endowment fund cannot be disturbed, therefore, gifts to the fund are sure to provide benefits well into the future.
