THE YEAR IN REVIEW 3 FINANCIAL REPORT 4 BY THE NUMBERS 9 IN APPRECIATION 10

the year in review Dear Friends, For many, the year 2010 will be remembered as the “Year after Chihuly.” As such, it was the year Garden operations returned to normal levels and we settled back into our more typical rhythms of attendance and operations. Still, it was a year of great progress and success. There were three major accomplishments in 2010 of which we can all be extremely proud: •

The Garden was granted reaccreditation by the American Association of Museums in June 2010. This outcome followed several years of intensive preparation by all board and staff members, and represents the highest honor a museum can receive from its peers. The Garden was first accredited in 1983, reaccredited in 1999, and again in 2010. Currently, there are 779 accredited museums in the nation and, of these, only 24 are gardens. Accreditation certifies that the Garden demonstrates best practices across all platforms of its operation, including its four key mission areas of education, research, exhibition and conservation of desert plants.

• T  he Garden’s cactus and agave collections were recognized as the National Collections of these plant groups in May 2010 by the American Public Garden Association’s North American Plant Collections Consortium (APGA NAPCC). This distinction comes after more than 70 years of cultivating and curating our cactus collection of more than 1,319 taxa (different species and/or cultivars) and our agave collection of more than 346 taxa. Designation as part of the APGA NAPCC signals the highest standards in plant collection management by the Garden, and its willingness to provide other gardens with germplasm for taxonomic studies, evaluation, breeding, and other research. • T  he Garden’s board and staff completed the first phase of strategic planning for the period 2012 to 2017. After consultation with all Garden departments, volunteer groups, and board committees, a framework for the 5-year period starting in 2012 was created and adopted by the board. Garden members were invited to join in the planning process using an online survey in December 2010, with more than 1,000 member households participating. The plan, now being finalized, is ambitious and calls for expanding excellence in all areas of the Garden’s operation. We look forward to sharing the plan with you in future Garden publications. As the following report from Garden Treasurer Steve Tufts details, 2010 was a financially successful year. Memberships, admissions, and the endowment performed well during the “year after Chihuly,” and the Garden continues to be financially healthy. We express our gratitude to all of the 903 volunteers who in 2010 collectively logged more than 77,000 hours of service in support of the Garden’s mission. The Garden could not flourish without you, and we are so very fortunate to benefit from your personal commitment to our mission. We also thank our hardworking staff and trustees: your excellent work and your thoughtful stewardship of the Garden’s assets are what make the Garden worthy of its accredited status. And to Garden members: we thank you for all that you do to advance the Garden’s mission. You are now more than 23,000 households strong and your participation and support are vital to every aspect of our operation. We couldn’t do it without you. With best wishes,

Lee Baumann Cohn President, Board of Trustees

financial report Fiscal 2010 Financial Highlights October 1, 2009 through September 30, 2010

Fiscal year 2010 is probably best described as a year when the Garden was catching its collective breath from the previous recordbreaking year coupled with a struggling yet recovering economy. While many people were going “back to basics,” they were also going “back to the Garden.” In both good and challenging economic times, the Garden’s beauty, serenity, activities, and life continues to draw members and guests from around the world. Despite a challenging economic year, the Garden continues to maintain a healthy balance sheet. Below are some of the financial highlights for the year: •

Total revenue declined 30% from $16.2 million to $11.4 million in this “year after Chihuly.”

 evenue from Admissions to the Garden declined 60% from $6.2 million to $2.5 million. R While this is down substantially from the record-breaking previous year, it does represent the second best year ever. Excluding the record-breaking fiscal year of 2009, attendance of approximately 367,000 visitors represents the third best attendance over the past 10 years.

 embership revenue was off less than 2% to $1.9 million. This reflects the strong value M people receive from their membership to the Garden.

With the decline in attendance, Retail and Beverage Sales were down 31% to $1.4 million.

Net realized and unrealized gain on investments increased from $545,000 to $644,358.

➢ Total expenses decreased 11% from $12.8 million to $11.5 million. Expenses were cut in all major categories. ➢ With the challenging economic year, our operating performance resulted in only a slight negative change in net assets of $96,369, after depreciation. ➢ The Garden strengthened its balance sheet by redeeming $3.7 million of outstanding bond debt throughout the year. As of September 30, 2010, outstanding bond debt totaled $600,000. ➢ The capital campaign, Tending the Garden, came to conclusion during fiscal year 2010. The Endowment that resulted from the Tending the Garden Campaign grew 31% from $6.7 million to $9.2 million. Despite the challenging economic environment of fiscal 2010, the Garden maintained its strong financial foundation and continued to provide great enjoyment to its members and guests.

The Statement of Activities above reports the results of Garden Operations excluding the effect of depreciation expense. Depreciation refers to the systematic allocation of the cost of long-lived assets, including buildings, furniture, fixtures, and equipment to the periods that benefit from their use. Recording depreciation has no effect on the liquidity or cash flow of the Garden. It reflects an estimate of the using up of the economic value of tangible assets. In the financial statements it reduces the Change in Net Assets (and, therefore, Total Net Assets) and the carrying basis of Property and Equipment. Unlike industrial firms, not-for-profit organizations do not provide for the addition or replacement of major longlived assets out of operations. Historically such entities look to capital contributions for those improvements. Hence, the financial performance for not-for-profits is best evaluated by analyzing operating results excluding the effects of depreciation. Depreciation expense recognized in the Garden’s records for each fiscal period reported here was approximately $1,272,000.

Carol DuVal Whiteman & John Schaefer

It’s not just cacti! I do love the Garden and it’s the most beautiful in Arizona; in fact the most unique and the loveliest garden I have seen anywhere... It is a joy to see the Garden bring such different types of music and sculpture to the Valley, and it was my pleasure this year to support exhibitions of work by Gwynn Popovac and John Schaefer. ~ Carol DuVal Whiteman

The Garden brings the moments of tranquility and inspirational beauty that is part of the Sonoran Desert. In addition, our family knows the Garden is active in scientific research that is helping preserve open lands and our beautiful deserts. This gives us all great satisfaction from our support for the Garden. ~ Bart Faber Bart Faber, Elizabeth Byrnes, Birch, Bryce, and Rocky

Virginia M. Ullman

Virginia loved the natural world. She was inspired by the beauty of flora and fauna. She was proud to be a long-time director and supporter of the Desert Botanical Garden. She visited often, and brought many friends to enjoy the Garden, even late in her life. She was a generous philanthropist, and left her foundation to help community treasures on into the future. ~ Harry Papp, Managing Director of the Virginia M. Ullman Foundation

Since the launch of the Monarch Society, we have met some bright, determined, and passionate people across numerous sectors of the Valley. It is one thing to visit the Garden with friends or loved ones, but it is a tremendous experience to actively work with other passionate, emerging professionals who love the Garden, believe in its mission, and want to see its elegance continue to flourish for generations to come. ~ Teniqua Broughton and Jayson Matthews
