What do donations support?

  • Partial funding of Operations... ASBA operates with a lean staff of part-time employees and contractors who are specifically focused on activities that fuel our strategies and add value for members
  • Partial funding of website up grades and maintenance
  • Artist Grant funding for the program Beyond the Studio... Make a Difference, leveraging our work to bring botanical art to under-served audiences
  • Expanded educational program offerings for members and the general public

Because we believe that botanical art makes the planet a better place, we support ASBA. 

There is power in commitment. And when we all commit, the impact is exponential.

“Without any art education background, my encounter with botanical art was absolutely serendipitous. Once I discovered it, however, I was so occupied and fascinated by this art form and my life has been enriched overall. So when I became a member of ASBA, I wanted to help ASBA achieve its mission, spreading the good news about botanical art through education, exhibitions, etc.” - Kumie Kim, M.D.
