Our Mission: To further botanical and horticultural science.
The Vaughn-Jordan Foundation was created on June 30, 1983 with the express purpose of furthering botanical and horticultural science. Grants from the Foundation have primarily included scholarships for graduate and undergraduate students in the field of botany or horticultural science, sponsorship of public television programming, other special projects related to horticultural and botanical science and gifts to botanical gardens.
