Funds

Named funds, restricted or unrestricted, are established by making cumulative gifts and/or pledges of $10,000 or more. Contributions to a restricted fund are used solely for the designated purpose of that fund. Contributions in unrestricted funds, as well as the General Fund, are used in maintaining the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park.

If you are unable at this time to establish a named, restricted fund for $10,000 or more, but wish to designate your gift to the Foundation for a specific purpose, you may do so by indicating that preference when you make your donation. Unrestricted contributions less than $10,000 go the general fund.
