Birmingham Botanical Gardens

With all that Birmingham Botanical Gardens means to our community, please make an impactful donation this year by supporting the nonprofit Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens. For more than 50 years, we have worked side by side with the City of Birmingham to protect, nurture, and share the wonders of Birmingham Botanical Gardens. Each year, with your generous support, we provide more than 2,000 pounds of fresh vegetables toward hunger relief in our community, offer natural science field trips and camps to thousands of schoolchildren, and educate visitors from across the region and around the world about the importance of environmental stewardship. Because of your support, we also play a critical role in supplementing the Gardens' operational needs and ensuring the ongoing stewardship and enhancement of this treasured oasis.

On October 4, the Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens plans to host Birmingham Blooms, a late-afternoon, outdoor recognition event showcasing the incredible beauty of the Gardens while at the same time respecting best practices for social distancing and other current COVID-19 safety protocols. Additional details about the event will be forthcoming. 

Sponsorships range from $350 to $15,000 and include the following benefits. Please continue to elevate our community by supporting Birmingham Blooms through a corporate or personal sponsorship.
