The worldwide health pandemic and the subsequent challenges we have all faced make our mission to cultivate beauty and enrich people’s lives more relevant than ever. Throughout the past year, our gardens and natural open spaces have provided important spaces for solace, healing, and refuge. Educational and wellness programs have nourished both body and mind. We’ve presented unique cultural events to offer respite and entertainment, and have created safe places to celebrate life’s special moments.

Like many other nonprofits and cultural organizations, Hudson Gardens needs your support now more than ever. Although basic operations have continued, over half of our annual revenue has been lost due to the effects of the virus. Donations are needed to help maintain our landscapes, retain our small staff, and sustain the programs, exhibits and events that connect people with one another and the outdoors.

As we await the time when we can come together to celebrate and enjoy our full spectrum of signature activities, we ask for your support to help us overcome the impacts of COVID-19. Together, we will ensure the strength, resiliency, and vibrancy of Hudson Gardens well into the future.
