Sponsorship Is A Win For You and For Us
The Bellevue Botanical Garden Society works in partnership with the City of Bellevue to achieve the Garden’s mission. Our role is to raise funds, support the Garden’s physical growth and development, and provide a broad range of programs and events designed to engage, inspire and inform Garden visitors. We rely on donations, memberships, special events and sponsorships to support this work.
Sponsoring the Bellevue Botanical Garden Society provides you with the unique opportunity to connect with the diverse people of King County, build brand awareness, and show your support of a beloved community treasure: the Bellevue Botanical Garden! Each sponsorship opportunity will publicize your name to thousands of people and will demonstrate your dedication to and support of this urban refuge and community jewel.

Garden d’Lights is one of the most popular winter attractions in the region. Over half a million sparkling, colorful lights in whimsical shapes of plants, flowers, birds, animals, and cascading waterfalls are set amid the natural beauty of the Bellevue Botanical Garden. This beloved holiday event, created entirely by volunteers, brings over 70,000 visitors to the Garden each year and is an annual tradition for many. Children use their “Critter Maps” to hunt for the creatures in the Garden. Musical entertainment adds to the holiday spirit. Download a sponsorship information sheet
Living Lab is a fun and engaging science-based program that provides children in grades K-5 with valuable grade-appropriate science lessons. The Bellevue Botanical Garden Society offers this extremely popular array of children’s classes at no charge as a contribution to the community. The Living Lab Elementary Program is a series of two hour educational field trips/workshops that provide hands-on botany-based curriculum. Each grade-level appropriate activity aligns with the Washington State STEM or social studies CORE curriculum. Your sponsorship will help us continue to offer this program and to fund bus transportation for schools that cannot afford the transportation expense. Download a sponsorship information sheet

Each autumn, our Symposium brings together a diverse group of internationally known horticulturalists, landscape designers, scholars, explorers, and writers who speak on a wide range of topics related to horticulture, gardening, history, and the natural world. A rapt audience gains knowledge, awareness, and inspiration that they can put to immediate use in their own lives.
