Roots ClubThe Dawes Arboretum was established by Beman and Bertie Dawes on June 1, 1929, through a planned gift—a charitable trust. You can help The Arboretum spread its “Roots” by following in their footsteps and leaving a legacy of your own!

There are many kinds of planned gifts which can help donors leave a legacy at The Dawes Arboretum while at the same time providing you and your family with tax benefits. Wills, life insurance and retirement plans are just a few of the giving vehicles available. By making your gift known to The Arboretum, you will be added to our Roots Club, which comes with acknowledgement in our annual report and invitations to special events!
