Olbrich relies on the generous support of many individuals and organizations. That support can take many forms, from making a donation, becoming a member of the Olbrich Botanical Society, or giving your time as a volunteer. Whichever form your generosity takes, know that your investment will help keep the Gardens free and accessible for generations to come.


Support Your Public Garden

Olbrich's mission and work simply isn't possible without you - we need your help to provide this plant paradise with what it needs to grow. Your gift cares for our plant collections, creates programs for all ages, and ensures Olbrich can continue to welcome over 325,000 visitors each year.

There are many ways to give, from one-time donations, to memorial and tribute gifts, to gifts made through estate plans or wills. However you choose to give, we thank you for being a friend and supporter of Madison's free public garden.


Join Our Crew

Volunteers are the backbone of Olbrich, providing thousands of combined service hours each year. There are dozens of unique volunteer positions to choose from, all of which provide the opportunity to learn and do meaningful work alongside a talented, friendly staff.

Whether it's assisting with classes or events, helping out in the Schumacher Library, or feeding animals in the Bolz Conservatory, there's a place for you here to use your talents and perspective while having fun!
