Give a Gift and Become a Supporting Member
Memberships and gifts account for much of the Arboretum's operating revenues that support our education, conservation, research, and horticultural programs.
Below are several ways you can become a member and/or give.
You may designate your gift or membership “where needed most,” for the Arboretum Staff Fund, public education, conservation, research, a matching fund for student workers, or to a particular garden you especially like. Contact Stephen McCabe at email@example.com or at (831) 427-2998 if you want information about naming opportunities or planned giving.
