Annual Fund

The root of the matter

Please give generously this year to The Morton Arboretum’s Annual Fund.

Let’s get to the root of the matter

This year, join with fellow members and other donors to support the Arboretum’s important work on behalf of trees and the value they bring to our lives.
Income sources like member dues and admissions alone can’t fund the programs and initiatives that make our Arboretum special. Whether you contribute $5, $50, or $500, your tax-deductible gift will help to support:

  • Education – Programs for children and adults – more than 35,000 each year
  • Conservation – The care and preservation of 1,700 acres of enhanced landscapes
  • Research – 23 PhDs and research associates focused on urban soil, tree root systems, forest ecology, and more
  • Programs – Emerald Ash Borer treatment, Dutch elm disease solutions, and drought tree education.


Every gift helps

The truth is, every dollar helps. Please consider a generous gift to the 2013 Annual Fund Year-end Campaign. And, this year you can divide your gift into convenient monthly payments.

Trees and the environment have never been more important than they are today. And, with your continued support, the Arboretum is poised to meet the challenges and opportunities for a greener, healthier, and more beautiful world. Your gift will have a positive impact on our trees locally – and around the world.
