PPQA’s Queen Anne Avenue Garden Challenge Is Underway Now!

PPQA’s Queen Anne Avenue Garden Challenge Is Underway Now!

Several generous donors are challenging you to make a donation. Between now and December 31st, they will match every dollar you contribute to help keep the gardens watered and maintained.

And, now that PPQA is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) public charitable organization, your donation is fully tax deductible: a win-win situation for you and the QA Avenue gardens.

Wait, there’s more. We have paving stones available for engraving that we will be placing along the perimeter of the Boston garden next spring.

Go ahead and download all the information you’ll need about the Garden Challenge and the Pavers; then make your contribution today.


One last thing. While you’re visiting our website, if you haven’t already done so, please enter your email address on any page where you see the space that reads, “Follow Us on Email.” This makes it easy for all of us to stay in touch when we have news to share.

Happy Holidays.

Take It Off...

Take It Off...


...take it all off!!! That's right!! The IRS has just determined that PPQA qualifies as a tax exempt organization. This means that effective October 14, 2014, you can take off your donations to PPQA on your tax return.

We're thrilled that the IRS acted on our application so swiftly...in perfect time for you to consider a year-end, tax deductible gift that will yield spectacular blooms in the spring.

Watch your postal and e-mail for a special donation opportunity you won't want to miss.

Initial Posting

Hello and welcome to our new website. Please, come in and take a look around. You’ll find current information about PPQA. You’ll learn how you can stay “in-the-know” about our streetscape projects and how you can help keep the gardens along Queen Anne Avenue N at Galer, Boston, and McGraw blooming.

We are deeply grateful to Wayne Winder for the countless volunteer hours he has spent redesigning our website. So grateful, in fact, that we have made him PPQA’s Webmaster Extraordinaire.

We hope you’ll visit again. When you sign up in the “follow us by email” box, you’ll be notified when we’ve posted a new update or published a newsletter. And do spread the word about ppqa.org to your friends and neighbors.

Any and all feedback about our site is welcome. You may contact us at pictureperfectqa@gmail.com.
We’re glad you visited.
