The USC W. Gordon Belser Arboretum in the heart of Sherwood Forest is almost entirely supported by two funds established in 2007 by the University of South Carolina. The Belser Arboretum Endowment Fund (#B11336) was established to provide a permanent funding mechanism for the Arboretum operation. Only 5% of interest earned by the Endowment Fund can be used each year. The second is the Belser Arboretum Fund (#1A3769) which is a spendable fund from which monies can be freely spent for current Arboretum needs.
If you wish to donate to either of these funds, visit giving.sc.edu/arboretum or write a check to the USC Education Foundation, 1027 Barnwell St, Columbia SC 29208 and indicate in the memo field the name and number of the fund.
