In-kind contributions are donations of tangible items. While the IRS does not allow Selby Gardens to value an item, we do provide a tax letter acknowledgment documenting the donation.

At this time, we occasionally accept gifts for our Research Library, including rare botanical books or prints, with an emphasis on epiphytes. The Library is a research and reference tool for plant enthusiasts, research scientists, and horticulturists.
