Please indicate one of the following:

Chapel Restoration Matching Grant: The National Trust for Historic Preservation recently provided Woodland with a $10,000 grant to assist us as we conduct preparatory research in order to restore the interior of our Tiffany Chapel.  However,  we must match the $10,000 grant with funds gifted to the foundation.  Donation Request:   $50 or $100.

Floral Fund:  Every year during the Christmas and Easter Season and on Memorial Day,  we decorate the Community Mausoleum in floral splendor.  It is truly a joy for families and visitors alike to celebrate the holidays and pay tribute in such a beautiful way. Donation Request:   $20 per Holiday or $50 annually.

Sponsor a Flag: Our Flag Retirement Repository is located in the Civil War Section and is used each Flag Day (June 14) and Veterans Day (November 12) for the respectful burning of over 1000 used area flags. Located on the site are flag poles with bronze plaques that have been donated by individuals and organizations. We have several sites remaining. Sponsor a Flag here.

Plant or Adopt a Tree: Our Arboretum was affected by Hurricane Ike.  We have been re-populating after losing many of our old trees. You can either choose a location and tree type for planting,  or  'Adopt a Tree'.  The cost to plant is the same as to adopt.  To review your options and choose a tree,  direct your donation to the Adopt-a-Tree page.

Save a Tree:   The maintenance of our Arboretum includes protecting our trees from the Emerald Ash Borer blight and the Asian Longhorn Beatle infestation that has swept the Midwest. Each tree must be individually injected to insure protection.

Become an Arboretum Foundation Member:   If you would like to become an Arboretum Foundation member, please direct your donation to the Membership page and read more about membership.

Support our Find a Loved One Site:  This site is provided through a joint effort of the Montgomery County Geneological Society and Woodland Cemetery. Your donation will be shared by these two non-profit organizations to help to defray the costs of data entry and updates to the database.

Other: If you don't have a preference as to how we should use your donation, please type "other" and we will direct your funds to the area where it is most needed.
