Support BAGSC and ASBA
Both the Botanical Artists Guild of Southern California (BAGSC) and our parent organization, the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA) are non-profit organizations that depend on members and donors to support their missions.
Support can include monetary donations, sponsorship, volunteering time, contributing auction items and more. Click here to contact BAGSC's President to discuss donations and sponsorships, or here to visit ASBA's website to learn more.
You also can support BAGSC and ASBA when you shop!
Support BAGSC through AmazonSmile
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets Amazon customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates 0.5 percent of the price of eligible purchases to BAGSC. It's that simple!
There is no cost to BAGSC or to AmazonSmile customers to participate in this program. The shopping experience is identical to Amazon.com with the added benefit that the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate to the charitable organizations selected by customers.
There is no charge to BAGSC for participation and BAGSC is not charged any fees from the donation amount, nor is any money deducted from the donations.
