Sustainability Fund

Your gift to the sustainability fund, above and beyond your membership, allows us to connect people with the wonder, beauty, and value of trees and plants, to inspire action for healthy communities. Sustainability Fund donations support the general operation of Holden Forests & Gardens, allowing new programs to take root and existing programs to thrive.

Planned Giving

Join our distinguished Albert Fairchild Society, which honors donors who have provided for the future of The Holden Arboretum through their estate plans. When you include Holden in your estate plans, you are part of the Albert Fairchild Holden Society, entitling you to invitations to special programs and to be listed with other legacy donors in Holden’s publications with your permissions. Unless otherwise designated, planned gifts are placed in the endowment fund.
