Funding & Support
Trees For Tomorrow is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that was founded by, and has historically derived much of its financial support from the forest products and utility industries. Today, Trees For Tomorrow has an annual operating budget of nearly $1 million. About 70% of this revenue comes from tuition or fees paid by those who participate in Trees For Tomorrow programs.
Because Trees For Tomorrow does not receive any state or federal tax support, the organization relies completely on grant monies and the generosity of corporations and individuals to help keep tuition affordable for the school students and teachers attending our programs each year and to provide a safe and healthy environment for children and adults to learn in.
All donations are tax deductable.

Throughout history, people have planted trees to honor deceased or living family members and friends. These living, graceful legacies not only honor the departed, they bring joy to those who live, work, and play under their branches.
A tree is a recognized symbol of nature's strength and endurance. Planting a Memorial Tree is a beautiful way to honor a loved one and an effective way to lessen the sorrow of the loss. The living tree memorial provides family and friends a new sense of continuing life.
For years to come, a Memorial Tree will enhance the local environment by:
- moderating the effects of sun, wind, and rain;
- supplying oxygen and improving air quality;
- conserving water
- stabilizing the soil and preventing erosion.
After a one-time contribution of $1000 or more, a native tree of your choice is planted on the Trees For Tomorrow campus. to identify your Memorial Tree, a 4" x 6" plaque is engraved and placed at the base of the tree. This plaque identifies the type of tree, the name of the person honored and includes a short message or date.
Your financial contribution is used to set up a scholarship fund in the name of the person to be remembered.
The Memorial Tree can be planted any day of the planting season. We encourage family and friends to participate in the ceremony.
For more information, or to order a Memorial Tree, please call Trees For Tomorrow at 715-479-6456.
