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.
Here are several ways you can become a member of the Albert Fairchild Holden Society:
For additional information on planned gifts, please call Alicia Soss at 440.602.3848.
The Holden Arboretum offers its members, donors and friends an opportunity to remember or acknowledge friends and loved ones through the Tribute Program. Unless otherwise designated, your tribute gift will be used for new plantings and ongoing maintenance of our beautiful gardens. All honorees receive notification of the gift.
Bench sites and trees are pre-selected by the Horticulturist to support the overall landscape plan of Holden. At the discretion of the Horticulturist, a tree, shrub or bench may be moved or replaced due to natural causes or to a change in the design of the gardens.
You will notice as you walk around our grounds named gardens and garden beds. These tributes usually start at the $25,000 level. We welcome an opportunity to explore this kind of a tribute with you.
You are invited to nurture the magic of Holden by pledging your support to the public phase of the New Leaf Campaign! For more information visit the New Leaf page.
