Silver Leaf Stewards
The Silver Leaf Stewards program is the perfect way to honor your family or pay tribute to someone who has touched your life in a significant way. With your tax-deductible gift, a metal leaf plaque will be installed on a rock wall in the arboretum engraved with your honoree’s name. Click here for more information.
Gifts to the collection support the Arboretum trees and plants, including new trees, mulch and other care supplies, gardening, trail maintenance, collection volunteer management, gardening equipment, and capital projects.
Gifts to education support the ongoing education programs of Hoyt Arboretum Friends. The education program provides a variety of services to the community including maps, interpretive signage, the plant reference library, plant identification labels, collection and tour brochures, the Arboretum website, the Plant Inventory Guide, newsletters, community outreach and the Hoyt Arboretum Visitor Center.
Endowment funds serve to provide resources for general operations or specific programs in perpetuity and are an important source of annual funding. Our endowment fund is managed through Oregon Community Foundation. Commemorative gifts can be made payable to Hoyt Arboretum Friends (HAF) and are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
