Major financial support for A Tropical Garden Flora was received from the Atherton Family Foundation, the Stanley Smith Horticultural Trust, and a broad base of community support in the Islands. During the latter stages of checklist compilation and name verification, funding was received from the John D. and Catherine T. McArthur Foundation (to Hawaii Biological Survey) and the US National Park Service. Completion of the checklist was funded by the Elizabeth Loy McCandless Marks Endowment, Bishop Museum.
