Every year in March we ask Quiet Garden Hosts for an annual donation towards the costs of running the Affiliate and Associate Quiet Garden schemes.
The suggested donation is currently £40 / €60 / $100 – and it is helpful for our administrative system to receive these donations in early April.
The suggested amount does not actually cover the costs of running the Movement, and if you are able to contribute more that would be welcome.
If you are in the UK we appreciate if this donation can be set-up as a regular annual donation on 1st April, ideally as a Standing Order.
If you are outside the UK and in Europe, the most efficient way is through a Euro Bank Transfer or Euro Cheque – and if outside Europe through a cheque (in your local currency) or via PayPal.

Many Quiet Gardens encourage a “suggested donation” (e.g. £5) for Quiet Garden days, mornings or similar event, that go towards the cost of tea/coffee etc, but this is for each host to decide.
We ask that any surplus funds from Quiet Garden days – after deducting expenses – be donated to the Quiet Garden Trust. This contributes towards covering the costs of running the scheme and extending the work of the Movement around the world. You can make such donations using the same details above, marking it as a ‘collected donation’.
