Funding Pierce County Master Gardener Programs

Master Gardener Foundation of Pierce County

The Master Gardener Foundation of Pierce County (MGFPC) is a 501c3 non-profit organization aligned with the Pierce County Extension Master Gardeners organization of Washington State University. WSU is restricted from funding some activities which are essential to furthering the Master Gardener mission. This foundation was created to fill that funding gap so that we can bring more services and have a greater impact within the communities of Pierce County.
