Like many organizations, The Morton Arboretum experienced significant financial losses due to the year's hardships. Generous support through annual memberships, philanthropic contributions, and business and community partnerships were essential in reducing the deficit. The dedicated efforts of staff, volunteers, and partners made possible the Arboretum’s continued impact as The Champion of Trees.
The Arboretum’s response to the dire circumstances that emerged in 2020 demonstrated its enduring strength. Like a great tree with deep roots, with the support of donors and members, The Morton Arboretum is resilient, adaptable, and full of promise for the future. Thank you for valuing trees and supporting The Morton Arboretum in 2020 and beyond.
