Friends of Boone County Arboretum has launched an annual gift-giving campaign to accomplish big-impact projects at the Arboretum, a different project each year.
2016 Project: Arboretum-On-Wheels
Donations for this year’s gift giving will be used to fund a creative and innovative approach to filling a great need in the community.
- The Arboretum-On-Wheels mobile lab will allow us to serve the environmental education needs of schools directly on their campuses.
- This project will greatly increase our capacity for environmental education with regional partners at community events, and during on-site recreational gatherings.
- A mobile museum lab will enhance the ability of the Arboretum staff and volunteers to actively engage the community on-site, at schools, and at other locations.
- Support local children due to current budgetary limits within schools which prevent teachers from bringing students to the Arboretum for class field trips.
2016 Funding Goal
Our 2016 gift goal is $25,000. Of this, up to 4% ($1,000) will be designated to the Friends of Boone County Arboretum general endowment, where only generated interest will be used while the original deposits will remain as invested principle to provide ongoing growth of the endowment. Gifts exceeding $25,000 will be designated to interstate directional signage to direct visitors to the Arboretum.
Employer Gift Matching
Some companies will match charitable gifts made by their employees; contact your personnel office to see if they have such a policy.
