Planting the Seeds of Friendship

Your tax-deductible contribution to the Operation 2000 Cherry Tree Project will do more than plant a tree. It will help strengthen the bond between two countries half of a world apart.

All contributions will be directed to The Dayton Foundation, a respected not-for-profit entity dedicated to improving the Dayton region’s quality of life since 1921. In accordance with its code of conduct, The Dayton Foundation will disperse the funds only to not-for-profit organizations or municipal governments. These donations will be based solely upon the discretion of the Operation 2000 Cherry Tree Project committee.

The project will be able to purchase, plant, and maintain the trees for an affordable cost. We recommend a $300 donation for each cherry tree, but welcome any amount to help us achieve our goal.

A monument is also being planned at one of the future planting sites. More details will follow.

Thank you for your support.
