Corporate Involvement

Demonstrate your company’s commitment to the environment. Encourage wellness among employees. Entertain clients and conduct business in a natural setting.

Through Tyler Arboretum’s Business Partner Program, your company can reach new audiences, demonstrate positive community citizenship and boost visibility as a partner with Tyler Arboretum. An association with an organization that is closely aligned with conservation, education, environment, and sustainable initiatives illustrates good corporate citizenship and earth stewards.

Your organization can get involved in various ways including sponsorship and program underwriting, annual fund donations, matching gifts, corporate memberships, corporate meetings and picnics, and your employees can volunteer their time and talent.

Revenue from corporate membership and sponsorship is used for annual operating support and to cover expenses related to specific exhibits and events.  Tyler Arboretum is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and its Federal Identification Number is 23-1417540.

Sponsorship

Throughout the year, the Arboretum offers members and friends many opportunities to learn and experience nature in all its beauty and wonder. Three of these events are fundraisers to help support Tyler’s mission to preserve, develop, and share our diverse horticultural, historic, and natural site resources in order to stimulate stewardship and an understanding of our living world.  The diverse range of sponsorship programs enable your company to build brand loyalty, increase corporate visibility and image, and reach your target audience.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Many corporations match gifts made by their employees and retirees to the Tyler Arboretum because it is a grass roots way for the corporation to illustrate the importance of both their employee’s and the corporation’s commitment to the community. The Arboretum welcomes these matching gifts! Please check with your organization regarding their matching gift policy.
