Mr. Bellingrath created the Bellingrath-Morse Foundation to manage Bellingrath Gardens and Home as a fitting and permanent memorial to his wife. Bellingrath Gardens and Home is an independent non-profit institution. Although the Gardens receive income from the Bellingrath-Morse Foundation, two-thirds of our current operations are financed entirely by admissions, gift shop and restaurant sales, memberships and contributions. Your generous support through the Friends of Bellingrath will enable us to preserve and improve the historic home and gardens for our visitors for many years to come.
