We depend on you to help us keep working. In some cases, we may be able to leverage your donations to get larger grants!

How to get a tax deduction for in-kind donations:
When you make an in-kind donation, please send us an e-mail with a fair market value (Example: Used 20′ shipping container valued at $2,500. ) UPG responds with a donation acknowledgement, which includes our Tax ID. You save this for your tax records or send it to your accountant.
UPG has Programs that are ready to expand… all that is lacking is the funding.
For patrons or donor groups, we can discuss how your support can help UPG grow. In many cases, UPG grant-writers can leverage donations as “matching funds” in a proposal with foundations or government agencies.

How UPG Uses Your Donations
Urban Paradise Guild is on a mission to remake South Florida into a better place to live, for both people and wildlife.
Our super-thrifty methods ensure that your donation will have maximum impact.
We leverage Volunteer work to create mission-essential resources. An example is the UPG Nursery Network, which grows both Native plants and Vegetable plants for use in UPG projects. What we accomplish with almost nothing is huge: tens of thousands thousands of Native trees, shubs, grasses and mangroves planted.
Interns and Team Leaders serve as Volunteer Staff, providing new Volunteers with both training and supervision.
In order to increase our impacts, UPG is beginning to professionalize. This will allow us to engage more Volunteers, Team Leaders and Interns, grow more in the Nurseries, build more gardens, plant more habitat…
Thank You for your Donation, and for helping us to create Paradise!
