The James M. Cox, Jr. Arboretum Foundation provides funding to the Arboretum and has generated more than $40 million toward its operation over the past 50 years. The Arboretum relies on the generosity of individuals, foundations, and corporations to carry out its mission and ensure a quality experience for visitors and participants in its educational programs. Funds generated through memberships, gifts, grants, and special events are combined with operational funding received from Five Rivers MetroParks, as well as more than 30,000 annual volunteer hours, to sustain this incredible regional facility for outdoor education and recreation.
