Annual Giving Campaign

The generous financial support of our members has permitted your Society to continue to pursue its educational mission by providing information-filled publications such as The Boxwood Bulletin, The Boxwood Handbook and Boxwood: An Illustrated Encyclopedia.

The Society has been responsible for the creation and maintenance of an extensive boxwood display garden at Blandy Farm, the State Arboretum of Virginia, containing over one hundred well-labeled plants, located beside the Arboretum entrance. Your generous past donations have allowed your Society to purchase new plant name tags for this impressive garden.

The Society continues to seek research study projects which will enhance boxwood knowledge and stimulate interest in its use as the "Aristocrat of Evergreens."

In order for your Society to maintain its ability to provide such broad-reaching programs, our Sixth Annual Giving Campaign seeks your generous tax-deductible donations to supplement other revenue.

PLEASE CONSIDER A SPECIAL GIFT IN SUPPORT OF THE AMERICAN BOXWOOD SOCIETY. Thank you for your generosity.
