  • Please GiveBIG to the Arboretum on May 8!

The Arboretum Foundation is delighted to be participating in GiveBIG 2019, which takes place on Wednesday, May 8. Now in its ninth year, GiveBIG is a 24-hour, online giving event aiding non-profits all over the state of Washington.

Started by the Seattle Foundation, the event is now being presented by 501 Commons in partnership with the Encore Media Group.

Please support the Arboretum during this year’s GiveBIG!

Double your impact: A group of anonymous Arboretum Foundation members will match every dollar you give—up to $16,000.

What your gift will support: Your gift will help fund the continued recovery from February’s devastating snow storm. Urgent—and expensive—work remains to be done. The arborists and grounds crew have their hands full, covering 230 acres to check on the health of trees, removing damaged limbs, clearing trails, and replacing collections that were lost to the storms. Your gift will also support our essential maintenance, education, and volunteer programs.

Membership benefits: If this is your first time supporting the Foundation, your gift of $50 or above will be applied to a new membership. If your membership expires soon, your gift will renew it for another year.
