Ways to Give
Make a Gift
The Arnold Arboretum relies on the generosity of its members and friends to provide the funding support that is critical to the care of our collections and the continuation of our programs.
Your contributions support our mission to discover and disseminate knowledge of the plant kingdom to foster greater understanding, appreciation, and stewardship of the Earth’s botanical diversity and its essential value to humankind.
A gift to the Arnold Arboretum may serve as a lasting tribute to a friend or family member. Memorial gifts help fund seasonal planting on the grounds, representing new plant material collected from around the world and replacement plantings of significant historic specimens in decline. The Arboretum will notify a designee of your donation. Please complete our printable gift form and include the name of the honoree and the name and address of the designee whom you would like to be notified of the gift.
Create an enduring legacy by including the Arnold Arboretum in your estate plans. Please email the Development Department or call 617.384.5763 for more information on planned giving options and bequest language.
