They were granted nonprofit, tax exempt status. This provided the opportunity for individuals and businesses to make tax-deductible donations to fund many worthwhile community services. The Club has hosted many events over the years, including 17 years of the annual Pontoon Boat/Garden Tour. Due to very low lake levels, the boat tour was put on hold, and a new fundraiser, Black Dress and Bling, was developed following several others.  Funds raised from these events and various other fundraising activities allows the Garden Club to provide a number of beneficial community projects.
