Frederik Meijer Gardens Foundation Recognition Wall

The Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Foundation was established as the Michigan Botanic Garden Foundation in 1993. It is a single-purpose foundation with the goal of providing an endowment fund to support the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park.

The Foundation accepts general endowment fund contributions as well as funds designated by the donor for restricted use. Contributions may be made as annual gifts, pledges over multiple years, or designated to an existing fund. The endowment is a permanent fund invested by the FMG&SF for capital appreciation and income. A portion of the funds is distributed annually for restricted or unrestricted purposes in accordance with the donor's wishes. A named fund may be established for $10,000 or more. The Foundation may also be included in estate plans. All contributions are deductible for both income and estate tax purposes. Learn more about the ways to give »
