The Morgan Arboretum belongs to and is operated by McGill University, yet all annual funding comes from the membership, gifts and endowments. It is through the generosity of donors like you that we are able to welcome the public year-round and carry out our conservation, education and research programs.

Several levels of donations are recognized on the Donor board in the Arboretum and in the Spring issue of the Newsletter:

Bronze $50 - $99
Silver $100 - $499
Gold $500 - $999
Platinum $1000 - $4999
Palladium $5000 +

Here is how you may direct your gift:

General Donation General support for ongoing activities such as tours and events
Arbo50 Fund For capital improvement projects with particular emphasis on collections, trails and facilities
Road Improvement Fund For maintenance of the access road to the Arboretum
Trail Improvement Fund For upkeep of the trails including trail signage, boardwalks and footbridges
Sustaining and Benefactor For conservation, education, and research activities
Platinum and Palladium Donor In this category we encourage dialogue to find a suitable project on behalf of the donor

Donate online. You can also mail a cheque payable to the Morgan Arboretum or drop by the gatehouse to make a cash or cheque payment or use the debit terminal. An official receipt for tax deduction will be issued for the full amount of the donation. For additional information, contact us at morgan.arboretum [at]
