Friends of the Arboretum

Your contribution will help the Hamilton College Arboretum and the Root Glen to delight, inspire, and educate current and future generations. Annual contributions supplement the operating revenues.

Contribution Form

Arboretum Fund

The Hamilton College Arboretum Fund is an endowed fund initiated by Thomas C. Succop, Class of 1958, as an incentive to encourage the establishment of the Arboretum at Hamilton College. Income from the Fund supports landscape and site work maintenance, and upgrading or additions at the College beyond what is provided by the annual operating budget for these purposes.

Special gifts to the endowment fund will generally or specifically underwrite priority long-term needs for the enhancement or maintenance of the grounds. Contributions may support internships and educational programs, including research, seminars, lectures, biology, and horticultural studies. Gifts may support the acquisition of materials and the development of displays.

Estate Plans

You can provide lasting support for the Arboretum through a testamentary bequest or a life income gift. Donors who provide this kind of support are honored as members of The Joel Bristol Associates. The purpose of the bequest or planned gift may be designated. For more information, please visit our planned giving website.



Help us provide an accessible education, offer innovative resources and programs, and foster intellectual exploration.
