Every gift creates a story.
The cost to operate the Morris Arboretum year-round exceeds the income that comes from gate admissions and membership dues. The Annual Fund is a significant source of support, providing 9 percent of the Arboretum’s annual operating budget. Gifts to The Annual Fund—most of which come from members who generously give in addition to their membership dues—enable the Arboretum to open its gates 361 days of the year to more than 125,000 visitors annually. Thanks to supporters of The Annual Fund the Arboretum is able to achieve its organizational mission of promoting the understanding of the relationship between people, plants, and place through programs that integrate science, arts, and the humanities. Make a difference at the Morris Arboretum by making a gift to The Annual Fund.
