Garden Futures Grants

The Garden Conservancy awards Garden Futures Grants for small public gardens and other nonprofit organizations that make a significant impact in their communities through garden-based programming or the study and preservation of garden history.  Through this program, we celebrate and highlight the work of innovative and diverse gardening practices throughout the United States.

Typical awards range from $5,000 to $10,000. In 2023, we awarded $102,000 to 15 organizations nationwide. Part of our Garden Futures Grants program, the Page Dickey Grant for American Gardens is an endowed grant of $10,000, awarded each year to a distinguished small public garden. All grant decisions are made with the assistance of our Grant Program Advisory Committee.

Applications for 2024 Garden Futures Grants will be accepted from April 8, 2024 through May 20, 2024. We will begin to reach out to prospective grantees in July 2024. Please click here to view the application.

Please note, in-progress applications may not be saved on the platform. We encourage you to save your work offline until you are ready to submit your complete application.

The Conservancy will not award a grant to an organization more than once within a three-year period.
