Automatic Renewal Program
Sustainable Support

Enroll in our Automatic Renewal Program and conveniently support the Garden on an ongoing basis.

It’s Easy!

Automatic monthly or annual payments from your credit or debit card mean ongoing membership benefits until you make a change.

It’s Affordable!

If you choose the monthly option, you can spread your membership dues throughout the year. 

It’s Green!

Your support goes even further by saving on postage, paper, and administrative costs.

How it Works

To enroll in the Automatic Renewal Program, you provide the Garden with a valid credit or debit card and select the amount and frequency of your gifts. Choose between monthly contributions towards a Friends and Family membership or higher, or an annual donation with any gift amount you choose:

Monthly Option (available for select levels only)

  • $125 Friends and Family - $10.50 monthly
  • $225 Festival – $18.75 monthly
  • $500 President’s Contributor – $41.50 monthly
  • $1,000 President’s Circle – $83 monthly
  • $1,500 Henry Shaw Associate – $125 monthly
  • Additional amounts available

Annual Option (available at all levels)

  • Charged once per year during your month of expiration

The Garden will securely store your credit card and charge your membership dues on or near the 15th of the appropriate month(s) at the then-current rate. Each year, as your membership nears its auto-renewal, you will receive an email reminder from us, followed shortly by a new set of mailed membership cards. You may opt out of the Automatic Renewal Program at any time by notifying the Membership Department.

To enroll or adjust your giving preferences, please contact the membership department at (314) 577-5118 or visit the Garden’s membership desk. It is not possible to enroll online at this time.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I sign up?

The Garden needs your signature to authorize your enrollment in auto renewal. Stop by the membership desk the next you visit the Garden, or sign your paper renewal form or membership brochure with your preferred giving option.

When will my card be charged?

Your first gift will be charged the day you enroll, either the day you sign up in person or the day we receive your renewal in the mail. If you select the annual gift option, your next gift will be charged on or about the 15th day of the same month in the following year. If you select the monthly giving option, your next gift will be charged the following 15th day of the month.

Is my membership gift tax deductible?

It depends on your membership level. Memberships at the Festival level and above are no longer 100% deductible due to certain benefits offered. Each year, we will mail you a tax receipt in January for the sum of your contributions of the previous year.

My membership card still has an expiration date. Is this right?

Yes! Each year that you are enrolled, we will mail you new membership cards with an updated expiration date.

How can I upgrade my membership?

You may change the amount or frequency of your gifts or update your payment method at any time by calling the Membership team at (314) 577-5118.

I need to cancel my membership. How can I do that?

While we’d love to see you stay, we understand that sometime things happen. Memberships are nonrefundable and nontransferable. If you’d like to discontinue your participation in our Automatic Renewal Program and stop future payments, please call the Membership team at (314) 577-5118.

I have a new credit card and need to update my payment method. How do I do that?

Please contact the Membership department at (314) 577-5118. Do not send updated information by email.
