Save the date! Give BIG Green Bay is a 24-hour online fundraising event presented by the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation and the Green Bay Packers Foundation to celebrate and support local non-profits. We are excited to announce the Garden is one of 31 nonprofits in Brown County that has been selected to participate!
Our goal is to raise $10,000 and welcome 50 new donors during this 24-hour giving event starting at noon on February 27 and ending at noon on February 28. The Green Bay Packers Foundation is matching every donation to make a bigger impact.
“The landscape of the Garden, now covered in lush vegetation, was once a bleak, forgotten, orchard dotted with telephone poles and power lines. Its transformation into the restful gathering place we know today came as a result of hard work and determination by a group of dedicated volunteers who came together through their love of horticulture and a desire to provide the community with a place for learning and enjoyment, for celebration, solace, and remembrance. The history of their mission to create a botanical garden for Northeastern Wisconsin is more than simply a record of the challenges and successes of this huge undertaking. It is a valuable example of how visionaries can bring seemingly impossible dreams to life through community outreach, partnerships and enduring effort.” (A Place for Everyone: The History of Green Bay Botanical Garden, Somerville, 2016, p.3)Learn More
