All of the profits from the tour are reinvested in the community. The Cape Fear Garden Club promotes beautification projects within New Hanover County through grants made possible by the proceeds from the annual Azalea Garden Tour. The club is quickly moving toward $2 million in donations to the community, mainly for maintaining and enhancing the natural beauty of the Cape Fear region.
