Giving in Memory

Making a donation in memory of a friend or relative who enjoyed the Garden is a lovely way to remember them. To make this as easy as possible, we have established the Giving in Memory Fund. This fund supports Garden projects such as landscaping, new plantings and education. For more information, please visit the Botanic Garden’s website.

Cambridge’s collections have multiple lives, embracing public and private histories, personal and scientific interest and the past and the present. They illuminate the wider activities, histories and environments of the people who made them and the worlds they represent. We draw upon our collections to conduct pioneering research. By investing in our collections and museums, our ambition is to deepen public understanding of cultures and peoples across the planet.
