When you become a member, we all grow!


Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance members enjoy one-of-a-kind experiences at the Conservatory while supporting the Alliance’s mission to connect people to plants and change lives through the power of nature.  Each membership is a valued contribution that will serve you and nearly 250,000 other visitors with meaningful experiences, innovative events, educational programs and an open door every day to enjoy the beauty of the gardens.

Check out the new monthly giving options! Monthly giving is an effective way to support the Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance. Your gift will be charged automatically each month from your credit card or bank account. This allows us to dedicate more of your vital support to serving you and your community, and less to administrative expenses.  After your first monthly gift payment, you will receive membership benefits associated with your cumulative giving over the next 12 months.
