Memorial and Commemorative Gifts

The Arboretum is a peaceful haven. It is the perfect place to honor a loved one or recognize an organization or an important event with a commemorative or memorial contribution.

  • You may dedicate a bench or picnic table in the Arboretum with a donation of $4,000-$10,000, depending on size and location. Your loved one’s name and your own will be inscribed on a plaque on the bench or table.
  • With a $1,000 minimum donation, your loved one's name will be included on a plaque in the T. Elliot Weier Redwood Grove. Your donation will support the long-term maintenance of the grove.
  • A book will be added to the Arboretum Library collection in honor of your loved one with a $100 minimum donation. Your gift will be recognized on a special bookplate.
  • You may contribute $25 or more to the Arboretum Enhancement Fund in honor of your loved one, to ensure the ongoing care of the Arboretum collections.
