The Friends of Jerusalem Botanical Gardens invest in the future by supporting education initiatives at the JBG, in particular by awarding scholarships (internships) to horticulturalists from around the world so they can study and work at the JBG. When funds allow, the Friends also contribute towards educational programmes for school-age children and the gardening outreach work of the Hub for Urban Sustainability.
Help us continue this support by joining the Friends. Annual membership costs just £60 a year (the equivalent of £5 a month) or £100 for two people at the same address. Please add gift aid if you are eligible. The Government adds 25% to the value of your donation at no cost to you and it makes a huge difference to us. Memberships can be gift aided and you can buy them for friends and relatives too! If you are making a payment for an event, please remember you cannot add gift aid.
The Friends also organise a Working Holiday for volunteers who travel to Israel and stay at their own expense to help with the small gardening team at the JBG. Please contact the Friends' office for more information - [email protected]

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
