Donate to the Arboretum

There are many ways people can contribute to the continuing success of the Iowa Arboretum. Every donation counts! Will you help support the Arboretum so it can continue to be a garden treasure for generations to come?

Memorial & Honorarium Sponsorships

Memorial and Honorarium sponsorship donations are a great way to honor and remember family, friends, and special occasions. A variety of gifts can be given, including engraved bricks for the patio in front of the Cafferty Building or Wedding Walkway, trees with personal markers, engraved medallions, and personalized garden benches. Each visit to the Arboretum will become even more special, bringing back the memories and honor associated with your gift.
