Be a Friend to Como’s Marjorie McNeely Conservatory

Community support keeps the Conservatory’s gardens and horticultural collections growing.

Sponsoring a garden is a unique way to keep the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory growing strong. Your donations help to plant thriving gardens, grow new programs, and preserve the Conservatory’s historic character for generations to come.

Sponsor a garden by filling out the form below or calling 651-487-8229.

Sponsorship packages include a set of conservatory note cards or an animal plush* for an animal sponsorship, a certificate of sponsorship and a fact sheet. Sponsorship packages make great gifts for any occasion. Please allow 10 business days for processing and delivery.

Please indicate on the form if you wish to have your gift be fully tax-deductible and we will not send the sponsorship package (note cards or plush animal).

*Plush species are subject to availability and similar species plush will be substituted if necessary. Please call 651-487-8229 or email comomembership@comofriends.org for up-to-date availability.
