Annual Fund

Thanks to the generosity of our contributors and our members who make annual gifts in addition to membership, the Annual Fund provides monies each year to sustain and enhance The North Carolina Arboretum as a vibrant conservation and learning center for people of all ages and backgrounds. 

In 2015, your contributions are more vital than ever as we work to address both pressing needs and exciting opportunities, including everything from new plantings and exhibits to important conservation and education initiatives.

Charitable gifts are gratefully received and promptly put to work toward mission-related programming at the Arboretum. The North Carolina Arboretum Society may accept gifts as follows:

  • Cash, check or credit card
  • Stock, real estate or other property
  • Matching gifts from your employer
  • In-kind gifts of materials, equipment, art, books, etc.


Our Leadership Giving Circle provides membership and other recognition for donors whose annual gifts total $1,000 or more. Of course, gifts of any amount are important and always gratefully received.

Please contact us for more information about annual giving, to review a current list of projects in need of support, or to underwrite a specific program if that is your preference:
