Learn about our different programs and choose what your tax deductable gift should fund.
MBS - General Operating Fund
Funds in this account provide unrestricted funds that support everything from beautiful bonsai displays to the purchase of office supplies and equipment for presentations. Your tax-deductible gift ensures that MBS continues to pursue its mission. Your membership dues support this fund.
Exccellence in Bonsai Program Funds
Established by a generous gift from the estate of Anna Stadnicka through her sister Katarzyna. Funds for this program are used exclusively for an educational series of bonsai artist. Your tax deductable gift ensures that MBS may pursue its mission: helping individuals in their efforts to increase their knowledge and skills in the art of bonsai.
MBS - Public Collection Funds
It has always been a goal of MBS to have a bonsai collection available for public view. With collaboration of Lynden Sculture Garden, Milwaukee Bonsai Fundation and the Milwukee Bonsai Society, we realized our goal in 2017 with the opening of the collection located at Lynden Sculture Garden. To continue support for the collection and Milwaukee Bonsai Fundation, funds donated will be designated to help fund future Challenge Grant to raise funds the Public Bonsai Collection.
