Why give?

We know you understand the value of Smith College’s Botanic Garden and the work we do, and that you appreciate the very special campus arboretum and the unparalleled Lyman Conservatory collections. While donors to the Botanic Garden receive benefits as members of the Friends of the Botanic Garden, they know that they are supporting a worthy cause — promoting both education and beauty.

Each charitable contribution supports the Botanic Garden’s mission to foster education about the science, beauty, and importance of the plant kingdom through the use of outdoor and conservatory plant collections, gardens, displays, and exhibitions, and to preserve and maintain the historic Olmsted campus landscape.
