Make a Gift to the Annual Fund

Did you know that government funding covers less than 2% of our operating budget?

Or that admission ticket sales cover just 27% of our costs? As a nonprofit garden, the Arboretum depends on the generosity of our members and community supporters to cover the remainder.

Unlike upper level memberships, there are no benefits associated with an annual gift. This means that your gift is fully tax-deductible and that 100% of your donation helps us stage spectacular seasonal festivals and special events, provide meaningful education programs for children and adults, and continuously enhance the garden experience for visitors of all ages.

The Dallas Arboretum is your botanical garden. Thank you for helping to make it one of the crown jewels of Dallas.
