Fellows Membership

The Council of Fellows was established in 1985 to involve the friends of the Garden in its development as a national resource. Annual membership dues begin at the $1,500 level and continue up to the $20,000 Chairman’s Circle level. These dues provide the critical financial foundation for Garden operations.

Fellows also have the opportunity to participate in specially arranged international travel programs, which include visits to private and public gardens. Many Fellows become involved with the Garden’s special programs and projects. Fellows are invited to the Garden’s bi‐annual board meetings and are encouraged to serve on board committees. Our Fellows have been instrumental in helping the National Tropical Botanical Garden become one of the most important tropical botanical gardens in the world.

Interested in joining our Perennial Society group? Join or renew your Fellowship with a monthly gift that will ensure year-round support for NTBG.

Simply make your donation online or contact Chelsey Aki at (808) 332-7324 ext. 209 or by email at caki@ntbg.org. Thank you!
