Thanks to corporate and business sponsors, patrons and more than 340 supporters for their generosity and care for the Arboretum.  With the generous support of many, more than $290,000 was raised to care and maintain the Arboretum's gardens and collections, fund educational programs and expand community outreach. Of that amount, more than $100,000 was raised for this year's Fund-A-Need: Historic Renovation and Repair of Garden Structures.
