OPPORTUNITY FOR GIVING
and events often deserve unusual recognition, and a gift to the arboretum
has lasting effect. Such events may include a birthday, wedding, anniversary,
a birth of a child, a memorial, or even a congratulatory wish. These
are gifts that help the Arboretum grow and flourish. Here are some
wonderful gift ideas. Donation

For this gift, the donor will receive a letter of appreciation and
an individual or group of the donor's choice will receive an acknowledgement
of the contribution and the reason for the recognition. The funds
in this category will be pooled and used to plant trees and shrubs
at the Arboretum and provide plant identification labels.

and an individual or group of the donor's choice will receive a
letter with a photograph of the dedicated tree. A dedication ceremony
may be arranged.
