Directed Giving

There are so many ways that your gift can benefit Smithsonian Gardens!

Director’s Fund for Annual Giving
Funds will support a special project identified by the Smithsonian Gardens Director.

Gardens
The gardens offer inspirational horticultural displays and provide handsome, restorative spaces for Smithsonian visitors.

Greenhouse
The Greenhouse Facility serves as the base of production and care of plant material used for the gardens and horticultural exhibits. It also houses the Smithsonian Gardens Orchid Collection.

Education/Outreach/Exhibits
Programs educate on-site and virtual visitors about the roles that plants and gardens play in world culture, natural and built environments, and garden history in America.

Collections
Our outstanding living and archival collections – Orchids, Trees, and the Archives of American Gardens – are critical components of our Education Program, featured in exhibitions, and made available for research.

Internships
Interns learn skills in a broad range of horticultural, educational and archival endeavors from SI’s expert professional staff. Internships provide a strong practical background to emerging professionals hoping to enter the public gardening world.
