RBG’s NEW Membership, Donations & Ticketing System

January 3, 2023

Royal Botanical Gardens is ringing in the new year with a new CRM system for processing your tickets, memberships, donations and more! The system (Tessitura) is officially live.

Features include:

  • Online membership portal to view your current membership information
  • Member log-on to access pre-sales and member discounts
  • One-stop shop to purchase tickets, register for programs, make donations, and purchase / renew a membership
    • As we transition to this new system, registration for current public programs will continue to be purchased through Eventbrite using the links supplied on existing webpages; future registrations will be processed through the new system and online site.

During your next visit, RBG members are encouraged to check with membership desk staff to ensure your email information is up to date, as the email RBG has on file will also be used as your site log-in. See below for further member instructions.

This project has been made possible through the support of  Ontario Trillium Foundation Logo
