We welcome your support.

Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park brings joy to guests every season of the year—and your support makes it all possible.

Without the financial gifts of a supportive community, Meijer Gardens would not be able to provide the programming, exhibitions, events and collections for nearly 600,000 guests each year. Because of you, Meijer Gardens is always growing, always beautiful, always new.
