Descanso Gardens Donations

“A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they know they shall never sit.” – Greek proverb

The Descanso Gardens we enjoy today has been shaped by the vision, values, and generosity of the people who preceded us. Their gifts, small and large, have enriched the lives of those who love and admire the Gardens.

In this season of giving, we hope you will consider making a donation to our annual appeal. Generations of people like you — visionary people and generous people — have nurtured Descanso Gardens. Your support helps preserve the landscape and enrich the programs we offer to community members of all ages.
