Red Butte Garden strives to honor and recognize its volunteers each year by offering the following benefits. Benefits are based on a yearly volunteer calendar which begins November 1 and ends October 31.
Volunteers can receive tax deductions from the federal government on out-of-pocket, un-reimbursed travel expenses such as parking fees and standard mileage rate (determined annually by the IRS). If volunteers have any questions about how they should file, they should consult a tax professional.
*Volunteer time logs must be turned into the volunteer coordinator to receive benefits.
*All benefits are awarded at the end of the year.
*Those who volunteer for school credit, community service, or other compensation are not eligible for Red Butte Garden volunteer benefits.
