Featured supporters who have made sustaining contributions:

The Taylor Family

Through their generous donation to the Campus Arboretum, the four children and families of Keith Taylor Sr and Gladys Eite Taylor established the Taylor Family Campus Arboretum Operational Support Endowment Fund. This endowment provides funding for grounds operations, including tree replacement, tools, grounds staff training, student projects, and tree salvage. 







Martha Hawes and Hans Van Etten

We are grateful for the generosity and good timing of Professor Martha Hawes' donations to the Campus Arboretum. Funds were contributed in honor of her husband and Campus Arboretum friend, Professor Hans Van Etten, to sponsor a tree and bench in his name and to provide funds for 6 undergraduate interns for a full year. You can learn more about Hans, the wonderful man who inspired Martha's generosity, here. 









Philip and Amy Jean Knorr

The Campus Arboretum wishes to express gratitude to Drs. Philip and Amy Jean Knorr, who were among the first and most dedicated supporters of the Campus Arboretum. They sponsored benches in the Olive Walk, established and generously supported an endowment in Philip's name, attended events and celebrations and provided encouragement and advice.Their foresight and dedication sustains our mission of tree care and preservation.
