Palm Dome Society

Palm Dome Society

Members of the Palm Dome Society form the core of support that breathes life into the Gardens every day. Through their involvement and philanthropy, members are building the foundation for the Gardens’ future fiscal sustainability, ensuring that the Gardens are here for generations to come.

Enjoy an insider’s view of the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens by joining the Palm Dome Society.  Your annual tax-deductible gift of $1,000 or more will make you a partner with other committed individuals who are working together to support programs that have an impact on nearly 90,000 visitors each year.

We are pleased to recognize the philanthropic investment of Palm Dome Society members with unique opportunities and privileges such as intimate behind-the-scenes tours with Gardens’  leadership, private previews to our shows and exhibits, and an invitation to our annual benefactor’s reception.
