Make a Gift
Your generosity helps care for our historic tree collection, preserve this ecologically diverse habitat, and engage and serve the campus and extended community. Make your gift today to support the Arboretum’s mission and programs.
As a member of the Haverford College Arboretum Association, you'll support the nation's oldest planned college landscape and connect with a community of members and volunteers who treasure our 216-acre landscape.
As an Arboretum volunteer, you can learn new skills, gain experience, and become a valued member of our volunteer task force. We’re always looking for new team members and hope you will lend a hand.
Adopt a Tree
Many of our trees were established in honor or memory of a loved one, or were planted to celebrate a special occasion. A $2,000 minimum donation helps to acquire, plant, and label the tree, and to care for it over its lifetime. New dedicated trees are typically 5 to 10 feet tall. An existing tree can be dedicated with a minimum of $1,000.
The Arboretum partners with donors to select an appropriate tree and location. Adopted trees are identified with engraved labels that include the tree’s scientific and common names. The additional text you specify can be up to 2 lines.
Sponsor a Bench
The $3,500 bench price includes a recognition plaque affixed to either a 4’ or 6’ bench. The size and location are determined with the help of the Arboretum staff. Plaque wording supplied by the sponsor can be up to three lines.
