Tributes and Honors
An honorory tribuite or memorial gift to The Arboretum is a wonderful way to recognize a friend, family member, organization, or special occasion.
Paver bricks are available for $100 each are are installed in the path leading to R.J. McElroy Education Center. Bricks can hold three lines of text with thirteen characters (including spaces) per line.
Tribute trees are also available for $2,000 and are well established trees that The Arboretum will maintain. The tree will be identified with an unobtrusive tag placed at or on the tree. The tag will be inscribed as specified by the donor, subject to approval by The Arboretum, and limited to three lines of text.
Cash gifts given in memory of another person may also be gifted to The Arboretum. The Arboretum will give credit to the donor making the memorial gift, and will inform the contact person of the names who have made gifts and the total received for the account if requested.
The Board will only accept restricted gifts that are deemed reasonable and meet The Arboretum’s mission.
If you would like to make a tribute gift to The Arboretum, please complete and send the Tribute Program Form with your gift, or contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (319)226-4966.
