Ladew Patron Circles is a membership for those who wish to make a gift of $1500 or more, our major donors and philanthropic leaders.

Ladew’s ability to flourish is dependent upon the generosity of people like you — members of Ladew’s Patron Circles — our distinguished philanthropic leaders. You understand the importance of your gift to ensuring that Mr. Ladew’s legacy is enjoyed by all who visit today and will be treasured for generations to come. Ladew is an international treasure nestled in the Maryland countryside. From the spectacular beauty of the 22-acre gardens, to the elegance of the Manor House, Ladew is both distinguished and remarkably approachable. It is a rare preserved property that offers all who visit a chance to experience the world-class formal gardens, the charmed life of an iconic American, and the exquisite and fragile beauty of the natural world. Patron Circle members provide vital annual financial support. Your gift supports the continued maintenance, care and preservation of the Gardens, Manor House and facilities, and ensures that Ladew will continue to serve the community as a significant cultural, educational and historical gem. As a Patron, you will enjoy extensive benefits which offer opportunities to learn, share and celebrate with like-minded friends, garden lovers and philanthropic leaders.Thank you and welcome to the Patron Circles!
