The Charitable Projects Committee not only requests your money to fund the projects you choose, we also need your deep community connections. Please stop for a moment and think about organizations or groups that might benefit from money and/or guidance from SLGC that will assist them in “matters related to environmental protection, conservation, horticulture, gardening and related subjects.”Read More

Each year, members of the Shaker Lakes Garden Club are requested to make a contribution, above and beyond dues, to fund charitable projects that fit within the club’s mission. Proposals submitted for these projects are carefully vetted by the Charitable Projects Committee and the very best are voted upon by the membership. Over the years, our club has nurtured small projects and strengthened larger ones.Read More
