Here's how Monthly Giving works:

  1. You determine the amount of your monthly donation. You may change it or stop it at any time by calling Sarah Tobeck at 630-719-2020. 
  2. Monthly donations can be made for as little as $5 per month.
  3. Monthly giving is also available for donors at the $300 Friend, $500 Partner, or $1,500 Thornhill Circle levels, or higher. The option requires a 12-month minimum. If you would like to arrange for a different payment schedule, please contact Sarah Tobeck at 630-719-2020.
  4. You may choose the month in which you wish to start your gift.
  5. You may designate the number of months for the duration of your gift - or until you tell us to stop.
  6. Payment Options:

      Credit Card - Your credit card will be charged on or around the 15th of each month, and you will receive an email acknowledgement when making the initial gift. After that you will see the gift charge on your card statement each month.

      Direct Debit - We can accept direct debit from your checking or savings account. You will receive an email acknowledgement when making the initial gift. After that you will see the gift charge on your bank statement each month.

7. Each January, you will receive from The Morton Arboretum an annual giving statement summarizing your giving for the previous year. You may use that statement for tax purposes.


Your monthly gift is so convenient, too. You will never miss an invitation, access to a special event, an issue of Seasons magazine, or the ArbConnect e-newsletter.

But, even more important, your gift will help encourage the planting and conservation of trees and other plants for a greener, healthier, and more beautiful world.

Thank you! We are grateful for your generosity.
