Woodland Arboretum Foundation

Woodland Arboretum Foundation

Thank you for your generous support of Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum!

The beauty and tranquility of Woodland has been enjoyed by all for over 180 years. Woodland depends on contributed support to keep its 200+ acres of greenspace, monuments, buildings, and collections well-cared for and thriving, as well as to support its calendar of educational tours and programming events.

We invite you to contribute to the Woodland Arboretum Foundation to ensure that what’s meaningful to you today, continues tomorrow! Your gift makes an immediate impact on the horticulture, arboriculture, and restoration efforts needed to maintain one of Dayton’s most historic and beautiful outdoor museums.

Horticulture Fund

The Horticulture Fund assists in the creation of scenic, reflective and beautiful gardens, and grounds to honor those that have gone before us. This includes the distinctive floral displays in the chapel area in our Mausoleum. A unique theme and designs are chosen during the Easter, Memorial Day and Christmas holidays.

Arboretum Foundation

Our Arboretum Foundation continues to focus on the restoration, preservation, horticultural and educational projects needed to keep Woodland a cultural resource for Dayton and Ohio.

Chapel Restoration

The Chapel Restoration Fund is designated for the restoration and preservation of the historic chapel, gates and administration office built in 1887. The Chapel houses 17 Tiffany windows, a hand-cut Tiffany tiled floor, and hand-painted Tiffany frescoes. All three structures are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
