Green Bay Botanical Garden launches 'Growing the Garden' Campaign - Jul 16, 2010
Garden officially announces Campaign at press conference
by Jake Czarnik-Neimeyer, Director of Development & Operations
The Garden has been experiencing great success and has enjoyed two years of substantial membership growth. Not only is it debt-free (a feat for non-profits these days), but growth in attendance has exceeded our ability to accommodate all those wanting to participate in our programs and events. After a year of planning, our Board of Directors has determined that it is time for us to enhance our facilities to meet this growing demand. We have decided to launch a campaign to raise $3.2 million. Our Growing the Garden Campaign will fund an Education Center addition to a renovated visitor center, a rest area in our Children’s Garden, and additional storage at our horticultural building. We also plan to further build our endowment to sustain this resource for many generations to come.
Earlier this week we officially kicked-off the campaign with an announcement that we have successfully passed the 2/3rd mark in the number of pledges received so far. We are well on our way to successfully achieving our goal—thanks to all of you.
