The Arboretum is run by GreenAllies, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization operating solely on donations and grants. Because we are not a township, city, state, or federal entity, we are not supported by tax revenues.
Individuals, small businesses, and institutional donors can support our mission in a number of ways! Help us by giving monetary donations, sign up to be a flash volunteer, attend our volunteer events, offer your services, expertise or just helping hand (we’ll find a place for you!), become a Friend of the Arboretum, or clear out your house of clutter by donating supplies.
All donations are tax-deductible.
- Are you a business? Check out all the great opportunities to showcase your business and support the Arboretum!
- What do you get the person who has everything? How about sponsoring an event in their name? Sponsoring an event can be done by businesses or individuals. it can be advertising, a gift or a memorial. It’s a great way to establish name recognition and link yourself with an organization that does great work and is going places.
- Have a spare $10 or $25 a month? It could make such a difference to the Arboretum! Help us Keep the Lights On and focus our energy on what we do best, creating the Arboretum rather than searching for funding.
Make a donation anytime!
- Does your company match? Check with your HR department. Here’s a partial list.
