Founded in 2004 as the Asotin County Chapter of the Master Gardener Foundation of Washington State, the Chapter updated its Bylaws and changed its name to Master Gardener Foundation of Asotin and Garfield Counties
The Master Gardener Foundation provides financial and in-kind support to the Master Gardener Program and other community horticulture programs in Asotin and Garfield Counties.
The Foundation is a dependent Chapter of the Master Gardener Foundation of Washington State (MGFWS), utilizing the non-profit status, which allows the Foundation to receive tax-exempt gifts.
WSU Master Gardener volunteers from Asotin and Garfield Counties form the members of the Foundation. Membership is not required for participation in the Master Gardener Program and there are no fees. Board members vote on foundation actions, serve on committees and assist with fundraising activities.
The Foundation is governed by a 5-person Board of Directors elected from and by the Foundation membership.
