Friend of the National Fund Membership

The National Fund completed its primary mission of building the National Garden in 2006. After the National Garden opening, the National Fund launched a Friend of the National Fund membership program in 2008 in order to raise money for educational programs at the United States Botanic Garden. When you join, your membership will directly help the USBG be a national leader in conservation, sustainability and education.
