Support Wave Hill

This is a difficult time for all of us as we deal with isolation, illness and financial struggles. But our Wave Hill community is strong. And if you are able, we are asking for your help. Closing our front gates means a staggering loss of revenue. We want to keep our gardens cared for, our staff supported, and maintain our connection to all of you. Please make a meaningful donation today.

This free program brings families together to explore our spectacular gardens and grounds and create art inspired by nature. You may not know that only 25% of the program’s costs are underwritten. You can help change that by directly supporting this cherished program. Give a birthday gift today!
