How You Can Help

Your Gifts Add Up!

We rely utterly on donations from community members like you to carry out effective projects. Thanks to your support, over nine years we have gathered partners in work that is visibly transforming Embassy Row, Washington’s most important diplomatic street.

Even more than tree rows, we’re creating bonds of shared values among those who now care for the trees at their doorsteps – such as an embassy sharing water and mulch with a US neighbor they never met before.

Keep our Green Community growing in 2017 – our 1Oth anniversary – to realize the Grand Avenue landscape and its civic value locally and to the nation’s capital. Here’s what your donation may achieve:

  • Stronger protection for mid-size “special” and big “heritage” trees in 2016 Tree Law (RMA education campaign);
  • New Tree Plaza to replace bare sidewalk by Dupont Circle, where the historic Embassy Row begins (RMA site survey & partnerships);
  • New trees and better growth of threatened trees on 2 miles of our Grand Avenue (RMA plantings, and volunteer and professional tree care);
  • Improve landscape landmarks on the Grand Avenue, such as Sheridan Circle.

“One touch of Nature makes the whole world kin,” wrote John Muir, the great American environmentalist (1838-1914).

We at RMA are amazed how our “kin” – our family of those who actively “re-green” the Grand Avenue – has grown and strengthened in a short time.   Your donation will make our 10th anniversary in 2017 the most transforming yet.

What your donation can achieve:

$ 1,500 Landscape an historic view
$ 300 One new tree
$ 75 Treekeeper tools
