The Mission of the Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation
(FBGF) is to support educational, awareness and maintenance activities
to create, sustain and grow a world class botanical garden. This
mission is achieved through providing strategic fund raising
initiatives, the funding of capital improvements, an endowment fund,
advocacy on behalf of the gardens and by generating engaged membership
and support efforts
The FBGF raises funds to support the gardens through a number of
ways. Our gift shop, memberships, monetary donations, Memorial
Paver purchases, donations to our Tree Bank and to our Botanical Giving
Tree all provide needed funds to support the Gardens.
Become a member to support new projects and initiatives, as we continue
to grow and expand. FBGF Members are covered by a reciprocal
relationship with the American Horticultural Society, whose admissions
program offers free admission and benefits to FBGF members at over 300
botanical gardens, arboreta, and conservatories throughout North
America, Canada and the Virgin Islands.
The FBGF believes that we improve the quality of life by understanding,
protecting and supporting the important relationship that exists
between plants, people, and the environment.
