Just as there are many ways to grow Wave Hill's spectacular gardens, we welcome the many ways to donate to the life of the institution. We invite you, first and foremost, to participate through membership, an opportunity that allows you to give back at a level that you find most comfortable.  

Our cadre of volunteers provides a staff resource that is invaluable; we invite you to contact our Visitor Services Department to learn more about current opportunities. These range from garden guides to volunteers who work alongside program and administrative staff. 

Another source of significant support to the institution comes from gifts-in-kind. Finally, for some, the opportunity to name a tree in honor or in memory of loved ones, is a particularly memorable gesture.  For information about our Vista Society, Wave Hill's planned giving program, please contact Wave Hill's Director of Development, Barbara Giordano, at 718.549.3200.

Each year, monetary and/or in-kind gifts of $500  or more are acknowledged in Wave Hill's annual report.
