The National Arboretum is a major center for research and education relating to woody
ornamental and floral plants, but to many others it is an oasis of green within the hustle
and bustle of our Nation's Capital. The Washington, D.C., campus of the Arboretum
contains several world-class garden displays and plant collections that are visited by over
500,000 people annually.
Many of these displays and collections are largely a result of a
partnership between the private sector and the Federal government.
Private funds played major roles in the development of the National Herb Garden, the National Bonsai &
Penjing Museum, the Asian Collections, and even the placement of the National Capitol
Columns on our grounds.
Thanks to Congress, the Arboretum was given the authority to
receive gifts and to ask for your assistance. The Arboretum depends upon private
contributions and donations of funds, pertinent goods and materials, and volunteer
services. Last year, the Arboretum received over one million dollars in funds and
services from the public.
Not only will your gift help us preserve one of the Nation's best treasures, but it can also
help to grow and improve our collections and services. Your contributions to the
Arboretum are tax deductible!
