In keeping with the Society's aims of promoting the understanding and research of plumeria, we have established an educational outreach fund to support academic scientific research on plumerias as well as to educate prospective landscapers and designers about the beauty and ease of plumeria in the landscape. In order to meet its educational outreach goals, the Society relies on donations from its members and the general public.
