Dr. Eric Conn, a longtime Arboretum supporter and namesake of our Acacia Grove, has offered to enhance our annual appeal with a challenge pledge, enabling our members and supporters the opportunity to double their donations to our yearly campaign. We are incredibly thankful to him and hope that you’ll take this special opportunity to double the impact of your support for the Arboretum.

Give a gift to the Friends annual appeal, or make a tribute dedication in the Arboretum, and he’ll match your gift dollar-for-dollar, up to a total match of $30,000! What an easy way to make a greater impact with your giving. Your gift of any amount will help support the Arboretum’s innovative programs and outstanding gardens that touch the lives of people just like you.

If you are interested in making a year-end gift for 2012 tax purposes, gifts by check must be postmarked on or before December 31, 2012. Or you may make a year-end donation by credit card through December 31,2012 via UC Davis’ secure website. Log on to http://giving.ucdavis.edu (click on “make a gift now” and select “Arboretum Enhancement Fund” under gift designation).

If you have additional questions about making a contribution, please contact Suzanne Ullensvang at (530) 752-8324 or sullensvang@ucdavis.edu.
