Ladew’s Patron Circles

Ladew's Patron Circles is a membership for those who wish to make
a gift of $1,500 or more, our major donors and philanthropic leaders. 

 

A gift made through a Circle goes towards Ladew’s Annual Fund, is fully tax-deductible and includes
membership to the Gardens.

The benefits of joining a Patron Circle are many and include opportunities to learn, share and celebrate with like-minded friends and garden-lovers. Above all, there is the deep satisfaction of preserving Mr. Ladew’s home and gardens and sharing his spirit through the creation of educational programs, special events and public tours.

In addition to free admission to the House, Gardens and Nature Walk and the other benefits enjoyed by Ladew’s members, participants in Ladew’s Patron Circles enjoy a number of exclusive opportunities to participate in events and activities at the Gardens.

Ladew Topiary Gardens is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is “to maintain and promote the gardens, house and facilities in keeping with the creative spirit of Harvey S. Ladew for the public benefit and for educational, scientific and cultural pursuits.” Both House and Gardens are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
