naming opportunities throughout the Garden to recognize gifts to the Garden, and we need now to grow our endowment to sustain our future. Endowment income provides critical annual support, mitigates funding risks in the future, and ensures that the Garden will be enjoyed by generations to come. And it enables the Garden to cope with unexpected financial needs, such as the recent project to protect the Garden’s irrigation and cooling systems from zebra mussels (about $900,000).

because of your continuing support and the skills and tireless efforts of the finest staff we could hope to have. Led by Jean M. Franczyk, president and CEO, and Fred Spicer, executive vice president and director of the Garden, the Garden staff works as a coordinated team every day to bring the best the Garden has to offer to all of its varied constituencies.

People come to the Chicago Botanic Garden to connect with the natural world and each other.

“Love the many events hosted and concerts! It’s worth becoming a member and seeing this place change throughout the seasons. Simply beautiful!” TIM ZEE, SEPTEMBER 21, 2017


“The Chicago Botanic Garden is my personal slice of heaven on earth. I strolled my tiny babies on those garden paths time and time again… I know the paths like the back of my hand. I wish they did too.”

“Every night, I go to bed hoping that I’ll wake up in the Chicago Botanic Garden. So far, no dice.” AIDAN SKYE, AUGUST 4, 2017

“Science Unites America! Watching the Solar Eclipse at Chicago Botanic Garden. Thousands of people turned up at the garden. Wow!” BETH PETERSON, AUGUST 21, 2017


Because of your support, the Chicago Botanic Garden is able to offer the programs that change lives, the gardens that bring comfort, the activities that promote learning, and the events that inspire people to care for our green and growing world. Thank you to our visitors, our loyal donors, and to our partner, the Forest Preserves of Cook County. We hope you enjoy reading about just some of the ways the Garden made a difference in 2017.


Horticulture and Plant Collections The Chicago Botanic Garden has one of the largest collections of hardy herbaceous perennials on display in any public garden in North America, as well as one of the most extensive woody collections displayed in an ornamental garden setting. What that means is that there is much to see and beauty to experience across the Garden’s 27 gardens and four natural areas. With the completion of the first greenhouses at the Kris Jarantoski Campus, we took another step to better care for and support that living collection. Once the greenhouse project is complete in 2018, we will have tripled the size of our plant production facilities. In 2017, we also began a project to improve the health of the soil in our Garden. The Sustainable Soils Initiative will ensure that our display gardens continue to thrive and please our visitors. Our work to build a broad and diverse plant collection is important, not just for the ornamental qualities that new plants can bring to the display gardens but for their educational, research, and conservation value. As part of the Garden’s Ten-Year Plant Expedition Plan, we distributed 446 seedlings from previous plant collection trips. The Garden’s Baptisia collection received the Plant Collections Network’s Nationally Accredited Plant Collection™ status, which recognizes national collections at botanic gardens and arboreta. This is the Garden’s fourth such collection; others are Spiraea, oak (Quercus), and Geranium. The Garden takes a leadership role to protect our lands and plants. Last fall, members of the Garden’s horticulture staff spent five days working at the Naples Botanical Garden in Florida to assist in recovery efforts after Hurricane Irma. We also were among the first to report the discovery in Illinois of the serious fungal disease boxwood blight. Our commitment to sustainability was recognized with a Platinum LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating, the highest designation given by the U.S. Green Building Council, for the Learning Center on the Regenstein Learning Campus. Leading all of these efforts is Fred Spicer, who joined the Garden in 2017 as the new executive vice president and director. He continues to set the high standard of horticulture defined by Kris Jarantoski, who retired in February after a 40-year career.

Learning and Engagement Every encounter at the Chicago Botanic Garden is a learning experience, from the visitor who walks through the McDonald Woods to those who take classes through the Joseph Regenstein, Jr. School of the Chicago Botanic Garden. In 2017, we renamed this division to better reflect that belief. We are committed to developing the next generation of conservation scientists, and in 2017 the Garden’s Science Career Continuum (SCC) received the grand prize in the UL Innovative Education Award program. This honor recognizes outstanding nonprofits that integrate STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and the environment into their educational framework. The SCC’s Science First and College First programs each give 60 students each year from Chicago Public Schools the training and mentoring that will put them on a path to college—and to becoming environmental stewards. The year also saw the completion of fundraising for the Farm on Ogden—the community training center, aquaponics facility, and urban farm in the Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago. The Farm on Ogden is a partnership between the Lawndale Christian Health Center and the Garden that will offer jobs training through Windy City Harvest and access to healthy, locally grown food. It officially opens in June 2018. The Farm on Ogden will also be the home base for Windy City Harvest, which continued to expand its youth and adult urban agriculture and jobs training programs in 2017. Windy City Harvest, the Garden’s continuum of sustainable agriculture training, has 13 sites currently in operation in Lake and Cook Counties and produces more than 130,000 pounds of locally grown vegetables and fruit each year. Horticultural Therapy served more than 6,000 individuals through professional training and direct services to veterans, youth, hospice patients, and others. The Veteran Internship Program received national exposure through a Veterans Day broadcast on CBS Morning News and highlighted the ways that being in nature can change lives.

Science The Chicago Botanic Garden’s multifaceted research initiatives help ensure plants can continue to provide food, air, and other life essentials in our increasingly inhospitable planet. For instance, research by conservation scientist Paul J. CaraDonna, Ph.D., into plant and pollinator interactions among native bees will help maintain this surprisingly diverse community. A study by conservation scientist Louise Egerton-Warburton, Ph.D., on the mycorrhizal fungi found in soil will provide clues on how to improve soil and plant health. A recently signed memorandum of understanding between the Garden and the Soroa Orchid Botanical Garden will help protect and conserve orchids in Cuba. The long-term survival of diverse plant species starts with seeds. The Garden’s Dixon National Tallgrass Prairie Seed Bank is one of the largest privately held seed banks in the United States, and its store of native seeds will help protect vital ecosystems such as tallgrass prairies. In 2017, students in the Conservation and Land Management internship program worked on the Seeds of Success program in 11 states to support native plant materials for restoring and supporting resilient ecosystems. In 2017, the Garden took a leadership role in a congressional bill on the importance of native seeds. H.R. 1054: Botanical Sciences and Native Plant Materials Research, Restoration, and Promotion Act calls for the use of native seeds to restore landscapes in places where nonnative plants threaten to upset the ecosystem balance, especially after wildfires, floods, and hurricanes. Students in the joint graduate program in plant biology and conservation offered by the Chicago Botanic Garden and Northwestern University continue to excel. Rebecca Tonietto, the program’s first Ph.D. graduate, is an assistant professor in the biology department of the University of Michigan–Flint, and recent graduate Rebecca Barak was awarded a prestigious David H. Smith Conservation Research Fellowship. Through the Garden’s plant science and conservation program, we advance the understanding and promote the appreciation for the plants that play a critical role in the health and well-being of both our planet and its people.

Visitor Experience For the fifth year in a row, attendance at the Chicago Botanic Garden exceeded one million visitors. There were new experiences in 2017. From May through October, Brazil in the Garden provided a different look through bold, vibrant tropical plantings; an exhibition on landscape designer Roberto Burle Marx; Summer Evenings featuring Brazilian music, and more. The Rose Terrace Beer Garden offered another dining destination and a place to unwind and enjoy craft beers. Summer remains our busiest season, but more than ever, the Garden is a year-round destination. The winter Orchid Show offered a tropical respite for 36,000 visitors, the Garden had its busiest Mother’s Day ever, the Halloweenthemed Night of 1,000 Jack-o’-Lanterns sold out in its second year, and the magical trains of Wonderland Express delighted a new generation. On August 21, the Garden celebrated a rare double event: a historic solar eclipse and a titan arum in bloom. Thousands of visitors filled the Garden to don glasses and view the partial eclipse, enjoy eclipse-themed activities, and see Sunshine, our first corpse flower to be displayed outside, which was in full, smelly bloom. We also had “twins” in 2017: Titan arums Java and Sumatra bloomed within days of each other. Membership achieved record levels in 2017, with more than 51,000 member households and $4.7 million in revenue. The Garden’s renewal rate of 73 percent remains strong among similar institutions. We also made an investment in modernizing our marketing and data analytics by installing a new Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system. It offers a significant upgrade to the online ticketing purchasing for site visitors and a data warehouse that will allow us to more easily access consumer insights. At the center of all we do is the Garden and its 385 acres that offer escape and respite for so many. As one visitor said on Twitter: “I always experience a wonderful connection to beauty and nature. And I always learn something new.”

Chicago Botanic Garden Financials 2017 Executive Summary In an increasingly hectic and busy world, the Chicago Botanic Garden is a destination of choice for people to relax, refresh, and recharge amid the beauty of the natural world. The Garden welcomed more than 1.1 million visitors in 2017, the highest attendance year in its history and the fifth consecutive year it has exceeded 1 million visitors. The number of member households exceeded 51,000, also the highest total ever. In addition, virtually all of the Garden’s revenue-producing activities exceeded the 2016 results, fueling the growth of its programs and amenities. For the fifth year in a row, the Garden has received a 4-star rating —the highest possible ranking—from Charity Navigator, the leading evaluator of the more than 1.5 million charitable organizations in the United States. Only 9 percent of the charities that Charity Navigator evaluates have received five consecutive 4-star ratings, which are based on financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency.

Operating Results The Garden ended 2017 with excess operating revenues of $791,000, following excess operating revenues of $366,000 in 2016. Operating revenue increased by $2.1 million, or 5.5 percent, to $39.8 million in 2017. When board-designated and restricted net assets are included, total revenue was $47.8 million. Operating expenses in 2017 were $39 million, an increase of $1.6 million, or 4.4 percent, from 2016, due primarily to expanded grant-funded science and education programs and higher costs to maintain the gardens and facilities on the Garden’s 385-acre campus and in the community. With the inclusion of depreciation, interest expense, and other designated expenditures that are not included in the operating budget, total expenses for 2017 were $48.9 million.

Change in Net Assets The Garden’s statement of financial position reflects an increase in net assets of more than $10.6 million to $195.2 million in 2017 from $184.6 million at the end of 2016. The increase was due largely to strong operating and fundraising results, including government grants awarded in 2017, as well as solid investment performance for the Garden’s endowment. The $130.6 million of unrestricted net assets represented the majority of total net assets, while $33.6 million were temporarily restricted, and $31 million were permanently restricted. This compares to $112.8 million of unrestricted net assets, $42.3 million of temporarily restricted net assets, and $29.4 million of permanently restricted net assets in 2016. Total assets increased from $243 million in 2016 to $252.5 million in 2017, an increase of more than $9.5 million. Total liabilities decreased by $1 million to $57.4 million at year-end.

Conclusion With the support of its board, staff, volunteers, members, visitors, donors, and the Forest Preserves of Cook County, the Chicago Botanic Garden will work diligently to honor the promise of its mission: We cultivate the power of plants to sustain and enrich life.

Because of you, we now have the facilities to grow and better tend to the plants that offer beauty and respite.

The greenhouses at the Kris Jarantoski Campus will be completed at the end of 2018, tripling our production space.

Because of you, we are building healthier communities.

The Farm on Ogden opens in June 2018 to offer jobs training through Windy City Harvest and access to healthy, locally grown food in the North Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago. 42 * Deceased
