The North Carolina Arboretum Society is grateful for those who wish to make gifts in honor or in memory of a friend, family member or loved one. It is our privilege to provide a place of remembrance and respect for someone special to you.
The Society acknowledges each contribution and provides a letter of notification to a specified family member/tribute contact or the individual in whose name the tribute has been established. Contributions to The North Carolina Arboretum Society are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Unrestricted Tribute Gifts
“Unrestricted” or general tribute gifts range from $10 to $4,999 and support a wide variety of Arboretum programs, projects and activities, including gardens, trails and conservation and education programs.
Designated Tribute Gifts
For donation levels starting at $5,000, our Tribute Program offers opportunities for the designation of benches selected by our staff for their beauty and durability, with a commemorative label in honor or in memory of your friend, family member or loved one.
Additional Tribute and Naming Opportunities
If you have a specialized tribute idea (for example, a tribute focused on art, trails or garden features), our staff is always available to work with you to explore other appropriate tribute opportunities. Most of these specialized tribute options range from $7,500 to $25,000 or more.
