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.

Meijer Gardens has a special place in the hearts of many as family and friends choose to make gifts in honor or in memory of loved ones. A gift to the Tribute program enables the dedication of a tree, bench or brick to the people and events that matter most. Tributes can also be designated to celebrate marriages, births, retirements, graduations, anniversaries, and many other special occasions. Review our Tribute Brochure HERE.

Have a special request? Please call (616) 975-3143 or contact Jaime Counterman. If a gift is made in another person’s name, there will be a letter of acknowledgement sent to the person(s) you specify. Gift amounts will remain confidential.
