Great Give Day 2017

DONATE to the Dubuque Arboretum


Great Give Day returns on May 11, 2017, and the Dubuque Arboretum is excited to take part! This 24-hour, online giving day is an opportunity for us to grow our endowment to build a sustainable source of income. Plus, your gifts made during Great Give Day may help us qualify for special prize dollars awarded throughout the day. Thank you for considering giving to the Dubuque Arboretum on Great Give Day!



All donations on Great Give Day 2017 (Thurs | May 11) will go to our endowment fund. In addition, 

  • your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar on that day through generous community donors! A great way to maximize your giving.
  • because the Arboretum has chosen to apply donations toward our endowment fund, any gift over $50 will qualify for the 25% tax credit.
