Sponsor a garden’s membership of BGCI

For 30 years Botanic Gardens Conservation International has represented the botanic garden and arboretum community.

BGCI is the only global organization that represents botanic garden professionals, and our members include the largest, most renowned gardens on the planet – Kew, New York, Missouri, Singapore, Sydney and Shanghai – but they also include many smaller gardens situated in the world’s plant diversity hotspots. We are an advocate for botanic gardens with policy makers and funders, we lead innovative projects, we provide technical support and training, and we fund the work of botanic gardens on six continents.
