A wonderful way to celebrate a life is to support an organization that was meaningful to that person. The Dawes Arboretum offers many ways to honor the important people in our lives.

Legacy Plants & Benches: Select from many beautiful plants or benches to honor and remember a loved one, organization or event.

Estate Planning: Planned gifts are a great way to ensure that future generations will enjoy The Arboretum as much as you have.

Memorials: A gift to the Dawes Arboretum can be a great way to remember loved ones. Memorial envelopes are available to provide to your funeral director. If you choose to request donations to the Arboretum, please include the following in the obituary notice:

In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial donations be made to:

The Dawes Arboretum
7770 Jacksontown Rd.
Newark, OH 43056

If donations received reach the designated contribution of a legacy plant, the family may make an appointment with the Horticulture Department.

If you wish to make a one-time donation of any amount in memory of a loved one, please call 800.44.DAWES or email us at development@dawesarb.org.
