Donate to the Arboretum
The active participation of thousands of individuals has enabled the Arboretum to carry out its mission to conserve and restore Arboretum lands, advance restoration ecology and foster the land ethic. Many contribute their time and talent. Others, having learned about our work through free, public tours and events, have chosen to support the Arboretum financially as well.
The Arboretum is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. Contributions support Arboretum teaching, outreach and research activities. To discuss giving a gift to the Arboretum, phone Susan Halverson at 608-262-2746 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may also go to the University of Wisconsin Foundation Web site, and download a donation form, or give online. Contact Sara Anderson with the UW Foundation at 608-263-9537 or email@example.com if you have any questions.
