Non profit status

The Bloedel Reserve is a not-for-profit, 501(c)3, public charity, supported by memberships, grants and donations. It is governed by a Board of Trustees composed of community members which guides The Reserve’s long-range planning and provides financial oversight, and works with the Executive Director to accomplish The Reserve’s goals.

Our not-for-profit status allows us to receive employee-matching donations from companies, and contributions from other charitable foundations.
