In all seriousness, there are compelling reasons to support the Arboretum:
- Total visitorship for the past year surpassed 40,000! That means you and your families see the Arboretum as your Arboretum. You are the public in our public garden.
- Our education programs serve more than 4,000 young people and adults each year, making the Arboretum a place to experience, learn, and grow.
- In 2013, our goal is to rekindle past community partnerships and initiate new relationships. Why? Because the combined efforts of public and private partnerships better serve the community as a whole.
For over thirty-nine years, Reeves-Reed Arboretum has continued to engage, educate, and enrich the lives of people so that they become better stewards of nature and the environment. But none of our goals or dreams for the future are possible without your support.
I ask you now to give to Nurturing Nature – Reeves-Reed Arboretum Annual Fund. Your special gift, over and above your membership dues, is fully tax-deductible and will help support our programs and general operating costs.
To nurture means to help someone or something develop and grow, to cherish. Humanity is measured by our relationships, and the potential for greatness lies within our ability to transform a community by the actions we take to inspire and cherish others. Together, let's inspire and transform our community.
Our thanks for all you have done in the past to nurture the Arboretum, and for what I trust you will continue to do in the future.
P.S. Did you know that your gift of $100 translates to just 28 cents a day?
