The Giving Tree will go even further for those wanting to give more than the amount available to sponsor leaves.
"We plan on doing rocks underneath," added Garrow. "That would be for giving levels of $5,000 for a small rock, $10,000 for a medium and $20,000 for a large rock.
Those who participate in the ARC foundation's annual campaign will also be able to count their dollars toward sponsorship on the tree.
"So, another way you can obtain a leaf on the tree would be to have your annual contribution be counted cumulatively," said Garrow. "We will do that, and as your donations increase, you can start with a copper leaf and end up with a large rock over time."
