FRIENDS OF LONGUE VUE

The Friends of Longue Vue is a group of members who sign on for a deeper level of commitment – and benefit from a different level of access – within the Longue Vue institution. These important stakeholders pursue a mission to create interest in and support for Longue Vue House and Gardens through educational programs, fundraising activities, and volunteer opportunities. The Friends are responsible for Longue Vue’s annual Games in the Gardens fundraiser, which raised $43,000 in 2021 to benefit the Landscape Design Studio in Longue Vue’s Discovery Garden for children.

Annual dues are $50 in addition to your membership and include an Annual Meeting, dedicated volunteer opportunities, special Longue Vue Board and Friends events, and behind-the-scenes access to this historic institution.
