The UC Davis Arboretum is a peaceful haven and holds a special place in the hearts of those who have enjoyed its unique public gardens and programs.
Tributes are financial gifts made to the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden in honor or in memory of a person, organization or event. By choosing the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden for your tribute gift, you are helping to support our mission to engage children and adults in the natural world, inspire the next generation of environmental leaders, promote sustainable landscape practices for the Central Valley and provide a scientific resource for students, faculty and the public.
We will mail a notification card to your honoree, or, in the case of memorial gifts, to the honoree’s family. The notification will include your name as the tribute donor but we will keep the amount of your gift confidential. In addition, the name of the honoree and acknowledgment of your gift will be listed in a quarterly issue of the Arboretum and Public Garden's member and donor newsletter, the Review.
Tribute gifts are tax-deductible and eligible for a matching gift from your employer. Tribute gifts to the Arboretum and Public Garden may also be made by mail: Attn: Tribute Gift, UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden, One Shields Avenue, Davis, CA 95616. Please include the honoree name and any additional information you would like us to know about your tribute honoree.
