Ways to Support BBG

From its inception in 1934, Berkshire Botanical Garden has relied on the generosity of its members and friends to provide critical support for our renowned display gardens, horticulture programs and workshops, adult and children’s education programs, and the expansion of the Garden as a community resource. By giving to the garden, you help us sustain our programs and carry on our mission of providing information and inspiration on gardening and the environment. 

Make a Tax-Deductible Donation

When you donate to BBG, you are helping us grow our gardens, facilities, and educational programming. Make a tax-deductible donation online here or mail in donations to P.O Box 82 Stockbridge, MA 01262

Make a Dedication or Memorial Gift 

Making a significant financial donation to honor or memorialize a loved one, colleague, or friend is a deeply personal act that is about more than a plaque. It is about doing good as a tribute to those who have significantly impacted our personal journeys. 

BBG has trees, shrubs, and garden beds available to seed a memory of a loved one. Please see our current memorial offerings here. If you are interested in scheduling a visit to the Garden to look at our offerings with the Manager of Development & Executive Director, please email, call 413 298 3542, or book an appointment online here 

Sponsor a BBG Event 

Sponsorship of a BBG event is a wonderful way for your organization to support a community resource, connect with new audiences, reward your employees, and network with other businesses. Our events engage tens of thousands of people every year! Download a copy of BBG's 2023 sponsorship opportunities HERE or contact the Development department at 413 298 4532.

Donate to our Funds

The Dorthe Hviid Tree Fund —

Initiated in July, 2021, the Dorthe Hviid Tree Fund was created in honor of our retired director of horticulture who did so much to nurture and protect BBG's trees over her many years at the Garden. This fund will ensure that BBG can continue to care for and augment its impressive tree collection for generations to come. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation in any amount to support BBG's tree collection, Donate here

Veggie Box Fund: Support us while growing vegetables!

Please consider a sponsorship of $100 that will allow you to claim "your" veggie box, with your name (or that of a loved one) hand-painted on our ornamental plant signs for all to see! Be creative and let those alliterations fly! Donate here to reserve.

Farm in the Garden Camp Scholarship Fund! 

At Farm in the Garden Camp, we nurture the seeds of stewardship by connecting children to the Garden, our food system, the environment, and one another. Please consider donating to the Camp Scholarship Fund to provide a child with this lasting experience: donate here
