The Buffalo Green Fund is a 501c3 nonprofit that facilitates landscape and beautification projects in Buffalo’s neighborhoods, parks, and public spaces.
We team with individuals and organizations to beautify and enhance Buffalo’s landscape. We leverage private donations, volunteers, and partnerships to beautify Buffalo in a bigger and more sustained way.
Our signature programs include: Matching Grants, Re-Tree, Buffalo in Bloom, the CommuniTree Steward Project, and Test Gardens.
The BGF organization is strong and contributions are tax deductible. Our organization was formed in the 1970s as private citizens looked for ways to partner with the City of Buffalo in response to the Dutch Elm Disease. To date, we have raised more than $1 million, facilitated the planting of almost 50,000 trees, and planted hundreds of thousands of flowers at Niagara Square and parks, pocket parks, and major streets throughout Buffalo.
