How we Raise Funds
Through membership fees, donations, grants, special events and community/corporate sponsorships we raise funds to assist the mission of the Arboretum.
You can also make contributions to the Friends of the New Hanover County Arboretum, Inc. by ordering items online through Amazon at smile.amazon.com. Amazon donates a percentage of every purchase you make to the Friends to give to the Arboretum.
If you are having a party and want to stock your party with wine, consider using OneHope Wine. These wines are produced in collaboration with winemaker Rob Mondavi, Jr. Through local events you sponsor, like wine tastings, or through catalog purchases for a birthday or anniversary, they will donate 15% of the sales to the Friends. Full case price is $199.00 and is delivered via UPS directly to your home. Order through Jeff Goll at 516-639-1036 or via onehope.com/jeffgoll.
You may honor the special people in your life for one full year through our Blooming Borders program. Each gift provides approximately 10 linear feet of vibrant seasonal flowers. The member price is $125. You can order online or call the Arboretum at 910-798-7660.
Several years ago, the Arboretum created the Durwood Baggett Contemplation Garden to honor past or present members of the United States Armed Forces. If you have a loved one who has a served in the military, this is an enduring way to honor them by engraving a paver which would be placed in the garden. You can also do this in the Tribute Garden to honor a friend, colleague or loved one. A 6” x 6” paver can be purchased for $100 or a 6” x 9” for $150. You can order online or call the Arboretum at 910-798-7660.
