Where do you go to celebrate nature?

Like Pittsburghers have done for 123 years, you go to Phipps!

Because you know you’ll discover the beautiful, inner world of plants at one of the world’s top garden-conservatories.

You and your family will also experience the finest exhibits and programs being presented by expert staff who have earned more than 60 recent awards for professional excellence.

Your support of this year-end Annual Appeal touches the lives of up to one in nine area residents, including more than 60,000 children. Whether it’s a child who smiles at the first up-close look at a palm tree; a student or scientist who achieves a breakthrough in their work; or, an adult who is ennobled by the garden’s beauty– all are gratified to gain the conservatory’s latest life-enhancing insights.

Phipps is your garden. We exist to serve you and your loved ones by meeting the need to:

  1. Create and cultivate beauty, enhancing life’s quality
  2. Sharpen sustainable gardening and landscaping skills and science
  3. Alleviate city food-desert insecurity through a neighborhood network of backyard, raised bed vegetable gardens 
  4. Foster STEM and arts education through dynamic on- and off-site programming, and
  5. Envision how to create and to live, work and learn in healthy built and natural environments.

Your gift today is extremely important, because it goes immediately to current, pressing community needs and opportunities. When you give now, the impact of your gift will be doubled through an anonymous match, enabling us to make an even greater impact as we work to cultivate a more beautiful, greener world.

Everyone at Phipps is grateful for your generous support of the Annual Appeal. Your donation today is helping make our Pittsburgh region healthier and ever-more beautiful – thank you! If you are in need of assistance, or have any questions, please contact our development department at 412/441-4442, ext. 3701.
