You made the difference!

On our very first One Day for UK, you showed up, spread the word, unlocked challenges, and helped meet our match. 

Your efforts, combined with those of 145 other donors, raised more than $77,838 for The Arboretum. And we're still counting! 

One Day for UK is a day to celebrate special places like The Arboretum and the people, like you, who extend their generosity to ensure we can continue to serve our campus, community, and Commonwealth for years to come. 

Thank you! We couldn't have done it without your generous support.


The Arboretum continues to grow and bloom because of donors like you!
With your generosity, we offer educational programming, conserve Kentucky's native ecosystems, showcase beautiful floral displays and serve as a destination for those in our community and beyond to enjoy. 
All gifts are 100% tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
