The Arboretum at Penn State


Many opportunities exist for helping the Arboretum by giving to our endowment. Penn State endowments are managed so that only a portion of the earnings (typically 4.5 percent) are spent each year, thus creating a legacy to be enjoyed by generations of visitors to the Arboretum.

A variety of programs and services can be endowed, including educational programs,
horticultural programs, staff positions, internships, and special events.

All endowment gifts can be arranged with payments over the course of five years, and most can be established with estate or deferred gifts. Contact Patrick Williams if you are interested in learning more about endowments.
