Your gift to the Fund for Ladew makes a DIFFERENCE


Several generous donors have come together to challenge the Ladew Community. All gifts made to The Fund for Ladew between May 1st and June 30th will be matched dollar for dollar up to $20,000. This is an exciting opportunity for Ladew to raise $40,000!
We invite you, our dedicated donors, members, volunteers, and friends, to give to The Fund for Ladew. Your support will expand our educational programs, preserve the rich history on our property, cultivate the Gardens, house our kaleidoscope of local butterfly species, and so much more.
Gifts of any amount make a difference. When you give to The Fund for Ladew you’re investing in the future of this Maryland treasure, helping to keep the Gardens flourishing for generations to come.

Thank you for keeping Ladew blooming!

Since Harvey Ladew established his whimsical estate as a public garden in 1971, Ladew has blossomed into a vibrant community resource for people of all ages, perspectives, and backgrounds. Today, Ladew Gardens remains a tranquil and welcoming respite for a growing number of visitors who come to us each year to experience the beauty of our award-winning gardens, magical native butterfly house, wonderful Nature Walk, and elegant Manor House, once Harvey Ladew’s home.

Ladew relies on the Fund for Ladew to continue impacting our community and preserving the legacy of Harvey Ladew. The Fund is the building block for all facets of our work and helps to sustain every aspect that you have come to love and appreciate about Ladew Gardens. We rely on generous donations to the Fund for Ladew from our members, loyal donors, visitors, and friends, who provide us with the financial resources to keep Ladew blooming for years to come – for you and your family to turn to us whenever you need us most.
