Donation Information

Entrance Construction

Because no state appropriated funds are being used for the arboretum, it is necessary to pursue private donations.

A gift to the Susan Jacobs Arboretum is an excellent opportunity to honor or remember someone important to you.

There are individual trees and gardens available for sponsorship. All donors will be recognized with appropriate signage in the Arboretum. Contact Bea Walters Smith to discuss donations and naming opportunities.

We gratefully welcome your gift to assist in the completion of the Susan Jacobs Arboretum.
