Our Funds and Current Projects

Annual Operations
The Annual Operations Fund provides for program support, publicity, and day-to-day administrative costs of the Trust.

Help support school field trips and educational opportunities for all generations through your donation to this fund.

Arboretum Fund
Gifts to the Arboretum Fund provide for the maintenance, planning, and new plantings in this 5.5 acre section of the park. The Arboretum utilizes native Wisconsin plants, shrubs, and trees and provides visitors the means to see these species up close.

Endowment Fund
The Endowment Fund provides a strong and stable financial future for Maywood. Donations to the Endowment Fund of the Trust ensure that Maywood is enjoyed by generations to come.

Property Enhancement Fund
Current projects in need of funding:

  • Landscaping
    Help us landscape around the new addition to the Ecology Center. This three-phase project will incorporate low-maintenance, native plantings and seamlessly incorporate current features of the landscaping including The Arboretum and the Rain Garden.
  • Bur Oak Project
    The Bur Oak project involves creating and enacting a usage plan for the Bur Oak area that aligns with the land conservation requirements of the property. This property, donated by the Garton Family, is located on Rangeline Road and provides a variety of habitats for study, research, and low-impact recreation such as hiking.
  • Pond Restoration Project
    Created in 1988, Maywood's two ponds provide valuable habitat in the park and offer educational opportunities to students and the public. Current efforts will restore water flow to the spring-fed ponds, manage invasive species, and allow for acceptability features such as docks.

Gifts In-kind
Maywood requires supplies and services of various kinds to conduct our programs and maintain the park. If you would like to donate items or your services, please contact us directly to discuss your donation. In-kind donations are tax deductible.
