In the past ten years, The Dawes Arboretum has gone from educating 6,000 to over 20,000 people annually. Over the same time period, Arboretum visitation has increased by more than 20 percent to approximately 260,000 visitors a year. However, over the past decade, our operating budget has remained relatively flat. We are therefore especially grateful for every contribution received as it translates to another learning experience for a child or another visitor served. Please consider making a donation in addition to your membership to support our most urgent funding priorities.
The Dawes Arboretum is a 501(c)3 organization. All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law.

The Dawes Arboretum ensures responsible use of donations and is rated an effective charity with a seal of approval from Guidestar, an independent agency.
