Tributes

A Path Paved with Memories

You can now locate your Discovery Garden paver on a map of the garden! Try our tool from your computer or phone, or visit to use our onsite kiosk.

Recognize an important milestone or a loved one by sponsoring a pane of glass in our historic Palm Court. All sponsors will receive a special certificate with the coordinates of their pane.   

Engraved pavers in our Children's Discovery Garden make a lasting contribution to Phipps and provide a special memory to enjoy each time you visit. 

A certificate from Phipps, suitable for framing, is a lovely gift for a friend or family member. Certificates are available for donations beginning at $100.

When you make a memorial or honorary donation of any amount, Phipps acknowledges your gift by sending a special notification to your chosen recipient.

To pay by check: Make your donation payable to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens and send to One Schenley Park, Pittsburgh, PA 15213-3830. Please include a note specifying: 1) whether your gift is in honor or in memory, (2) the name of the individual the gift is in honor or memory of, (3) the name and address of the person you would like us to send a letter of notification to, and (4) your name as it should appear in the notification.
