Every year, between Thanksgiving and the winter holidays, the Arboretum, along with most non-profit organizations, send out a year end “Annual Appeal.” What does this mean to you? How does this affect you?
The Arboretum is currently a public green space in the Cedar Valley that charges no admission for its services. While we might not always have an event occurring, the cost to simply offer free admission to the people of the Cedar Valley and beyond is very high. Since we are a 501c(3) non-profit organization, we receive no city, state, or federal funding. This means that we not only stay open, but remain a beautiful, peaceful place for the public, exclusively from grants and donations.
This is why we need YOU. The Arboretum cannot exist without generous supporters who believe in what we have to offer. If you bring your children to play in the Children’s Garden or explore the Sherlock Gnomes Scavenger Hunt, we need you. If you have celebrated a life milestone here, such as a wedding, a baby shower, or a graduation, we need you. If you have walked along the trails and enjoyed the chirping birds, the breeze in the trees, and the fragrance and beauty of our flowers, we need you. Every little bit helps to keep our gardens beautiful and growing.
Please take a moment and send us a gift today!We thank you for your support and for joining us in continuing to provide the Cedar Valley a beautiful place to take refuge from the fast pace of life.
