Tax-deductible donations may be made to the Kendal Crosslands Arboretum Fund that supports the  purchase of Gift Trees and the requirements of ArbNet accreditation.

Since the Arboretum Fund was established in the Fall of 2014, more than seventy five gift trees have been planted. Due to the generosity of donors on both campuses and relatives of former residents, together with additional unrestricted gifts, an average of $13,800 has been received in each of the subsequent years. Because such gifts are guaranteed for two years, monies are set aside to cover that period for each tree. The balance of funds is used to pay for tree tags and other tree-related expenses. As of August 2019, these trees include: 226 trees on 10 guided walks, more than 50 Gift Trees, 12 Arbor Day trees, and 100 trees in three Featured Collections.

Planting trees in honor of special events and special people is a long tradition. The Kendal Crosslands Joint Arboretum Committee (composed of residents from both communities and the KCA Curator/Grounds Supervisor) is pleased to work with individuals who may be interested in donating a tree to either the Kendal or the Crosslands campus - contact the KCC Director of Philanthropy for further information.
