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 the Arboretum as a vibrant learning center for people of all ages and backgrounds. 

In 2014 and 2015, your contributions are more vital than ever as we face this difficult economic climate and unprecedented fiscal challenges to state and public funding. The Arboretum will continue to do all it can to reduce the impact of the recession on its services and to offer you a place of beauty, respite, learning and economic innovation. To do so, however, will require an ongoing partnership with our donors.

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.

Leadership Giving Circle
provides membership and other recognition for donors whose annual gifts total $1,000 or more.
