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.
Current funding priorities:
Land Stewardship Fund
Director’s Discretionary Fund
Arboretum Restoration Ecology Research Fund
Named Funds for Special Purposes
