The Polly Hill Arboretum relies on the generosity of its members and friends to provide the funding support that is critical to the care of our collections and the continuation of our programs.

Our annual operating expenses are supported with funds raised through membership, donations, and our spring and fall appeals. Voluntary contributions to our appeals are an opportunity to support PHA in addition to membership dues. Gifts to this appeal provide direct support to our daily operations; activities such as maintaining the grounds, preparing the collections for winter, organizing school group tours, collecting seed, and updating plant records.

case statement coverThis year’s Fall Appeal is designated for the construction of our planned Education Center and Botany Lab and donations will be matched dollar for dollar by the Cedar Tree Foundation.

This education center and science facility embodies our mission to the fullest extent. The building will provide the space and equipment to advance our plant research and the climate-controlled indoor environment to extend our education programming year-round. Completing the building also honors the spirit of Polly Hill and David Smith, both who sought to share knowledge about plants through education, research, and plant conservation.




Planned Giving  is also a meaningful way to support the Arboretum now and into the future. For more information please call our director Tim Boland at 508-693-9426.







Thank you for your support as we work to maintain the Arboretum in a manner that honors Polly Hill’s lifework. We will use your gift wisely to meet practical needs.
