The Evergreen Society
Evergreen Society monthly gifts supports the Annual Fund and guarantees Tyler regular and predictable funds, allowing us to make solid commitments to new and current projects. Since we know we can count on receiving your support every month, we are able to decrease the expenses of our fundraising and put more of our money into our programs. As a small token of our appreciation, we will send you a Tyler Arboretum car window decal.
No matter how much or how often it comes, we are always grateful for your loyal and generous support.

Tyler Arboretum’s brand new Evergreen Society (monthly giving program) is a great way to show your support all year long. And it’s an especially important part of Tyler’s work “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.
Today, we invite you to become a Founding Evergreen Society Member. By pledging to make a gift every month, members of the Evergreen Society provide the steady, dependable resources that we need. Because monthly donations are processed automatically, they help reduce Tyler’s fundraising expenses, allowing us to devote an even greater percentage of your gift to fulfill our mission. Since Tyler does not receive local or state tax support, we rely on the generosity of donors like you to help with our everyday operational needs.
With the Evergreen Society, the amount you specify is charged to your credit or debit card, making this program the “greenest” way to donate. It eliminates the need for checks and reduces administrative and fundraising costs—so your donation goes further in supporting the environment!
