You believe in PHS’s work and want to improve our region’s health and wellness in a targeted way with philanthropic support. Here are ways you can make a transformative difference for specific initiatives through a major gift.
Gifts to PHS’s endowment provide dedicated philanthropic support, in perpetuity, to PHS’s most critically important programs, from our Healthy Neighborhoods work to the Philadelphia Flower Show. A gift to the PHS endowment helps safeguard PHS’s future impact; advancing health and well-being using horticulture in over 250 neighborhoods in the Greater Philadelphia region.
PHS’s giving circles are communities of leadership donors who are making multi-year restricted philanthropic investments of $10,000 or more in addition to their annual membership to create significant impact in a PHS programmatic area.
Supports community-driven, place-based greening initiatives that boost tree canopy coverage through tree planting efforts, work with community gardens to increase access to fresh food, reduce violent crimes by cleaning vacant lots, and provide jobs through workforce development.
Supports the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show, the largest indoor flower show in the world. Gifts help ensure the Flower Show’s annual impact: introducing the public to the world of floral design and gardening, celebrating horticultural excellence, promoting gardener education, and fueling PHS’s year-round mission and impact.
Supports PHS’s work operating and maintaining a large and diverse network of public gardens and landscapes offered free to the public and managed with environmentally friendly practices. Public gardens and landscapes in the PHS network include highly visible sites like the Azalea Garden, Logan Circle, the PHS Pop Up Gardens, and Meadowbrook Farm.
Multifaceted, long-term projects where PHS has determined the potential for large-scale impact that is only possible through individual, corporate, and institutional support.
The Nicetown and Tioga “Love Where You Live” Greening Plan represents a transformational opportunity to connect neighbors through horticulture and ultimately build a healthier, happier, and safer community in the beautiful and historic Philadelphia neighborhoods of Nicetown and Tioga.
PHS has expanded its programmatic footprint in partnership with Montgomery County to create the Green Resource Center at Norristown Farm Park, which includes a 2-acre teaching and production farm where all produce is donated.
