The George and Sara Briggs Family Endowment for Art, Landscape & Inspiration will create positive and lasting impressions for visitors of all ages by funding elements characteristic of The North Carolina Arboretum and its unique setting within the Southern Appalachian region.

With your participation, the endowment will sustain a legacy of creativity at the Arboretum by supporting new projects such as art elements representing indigenous plants and animals, colorful plantings, and inspiring landscape design. The arrival into The North Carolina Arboretum from the Blue Ridge Parkway and along Frederick Law Olmsted Way sets educational, aesthetic, and locational anticipation for the institution, and will be the first of many future priorities supported by this one-of-a-kind endowment.
