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 could not provide the programming, exhibitions, events and collections for nearly 600,000 guests annually.
