Thank you for considering helping our cause and city.
Tree Friends have an Endowment!
Beloved friends of trees, John and Joanne MacDonald, graciously gifted the West Lafayette Tree Friends funding in their passing, so they may continue to grow and protect our community’s urban forest. The West Lafayette Tree Friends have approved the launch of the West Lafayette Tree Friends Endowment, in partnership with the Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette, to honor of the generosity and foresight of the late MacDonalds. This endowment will ensure additional funding to plant, protect, and promote West Lafayette’s tree canopy.
Donate to our General Fund, and your gift will be used to help the West Lafayette Tree Friends purchase new and replacement trees, purchase or repair equipment for volunteers to use, and support the newsletter and website.
Donating to the Tribute Tree Fund allows you to choose a tree to be planted as a tribute to a specific person or group. See the Tribute Trees tab at the top of the page for details.
To donate the Endowment, the General Fund or the Tribute Tree Fund, go to the bottom of the page to print out a donation form or donate by credit card online. You can also donate to the Tree Friends Endowment through the Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette’s list of endowments at http://www.cfglaf.org/index.php/donor-opportunities-2.
Don’t forget, donations of any size help the West Lafayette Tree Friends continue to make our urban forest and our city healthier and more welcoming. We can’t thank you enough for thinking of us.
