Membership and Giving
Although the Arboretum is in the Department of Horticulture and Crop Science, it is funded only in part by The Ohio State University. It is through the generous support of our members that sustains us and makes our gardens grow!
Your contributions are essential revenue for our operations and programs - helping us buy plants, tools, and all the resources that are needed to run a public garden. Additionally, you are investing in the future of horticulture. Your membership dollars enable us to hire student workers and give them the training they need to become successful horticulturists!
Of course your membership is not without benefits. Friends of Chadwick are invited to exclusive events, such as our Friends Pancake Breakfast and Plant Sale preview party, 10% off select merchandise at our Plant Sale, and reciprocal membership to over 200 public gardens across the United States.
JOIN NOW and take advantage of a full year of special member activities. If you are already a member you can renew now or share your enthusiasm with a friend, neighbor, or colleague by giving them a gift of membership.
OSU Employees - Chadwick is a place to relax during lunch or wind down after a busy day at work. Please consider supporting your public garden through the Campus Campaign.
Chadwick is now a partner in the ‘Bloomin' Bucks’ program from Brent and Becky's Bulbs. Bloomin' Bucks is a progressive fundraising program that donates 25% of a customer’s total order to a few select non-profit organizations. All orders must be received via the website www.bloominbucks.com .
