SUPPORT

The Conservatory of Flowers relies on the support of people like you to maintain its galleries and host special exhibits. Help the Conservatory thrive by making an individual donation or having your company sponsor an event.

Make a lasting tribute to someone you love.

Perhaps your mother loved the Conservatory of Flowers. Maybe your husband proposed to you here, or your grandmother brought you to the greenhouse when you were iittle. A gift to the nation's oldest public wood-and-glass conservatory in honor or memory of that special loved one will act as a "living gift" that insures their memory will live in on the most beautiful spot in San Francisco.

 

The Conservatory of Flowers has stood proudly as a Victorian landmark in Golden Gate Park for over 135 years. Your gift in honor or in memory of a loved one will help to ensure that we're here for another 135 years, thriving and open for future generations to enjoy.

 

Help keep our world-class botanical collections and vital school education programs alive and well for decades to come. Your bequest is tax exempt, easy to establish, and will not impact your current finances. For more information, or to let us know that you have created a bequest, please contact the Conservatory's Development Director, Jane Scurich, at 415-831-2093, or jscurich@sfcof.org.
