Our Commitment to Giving
Since 1946, Ann Arbor Farm & Garden has distributed more than $500,000 in charitable grants to a diverse group of local institutions and community projects. Along with beautification and environmental restoration efforts, several of the programs selected in recent years have focused on community vegetable gardens, introducing children to gardening, and those involved in local agriculture. We’ve awarded many grants to local institutions for the creation and restoration of public and specialty gardens, such as the Gaffield Children's Garden at Matthaei Botanical Gardens and the Centennial Shrub Collection at Nichols Arboretum. These green spaces enhance the environment and provide enjoyment for visitors of all ages.

Providing critical financial support to students has long been a goal of Ann Arbor Farm & Garden. For more than 20 years, we’ve awarded an annual graduate student scholarship at the U-M Biological Station and a scholarship for a student in U-M’s School of Natural Resources and the Environment (SNRE). We also support the student internship endowment at Matthaei Botanical Gardens & Nichols Arboretum.
Giving on a Global Scale
Since 1962, the Ann Arbor Branch has provided support to four WNF&GA programs: 4-H Leadership Training, International 4-H Exchange, the Frysinger Fellowship, and the Lady Aberdeen Scholarship. Information about these programs can be found at www.wnfga.org.
