ur fiscal year ended with the market value of our endowment at $146.8 million and Total Net Assets at $163.5 million, both just slightly higher than a year ago. Of the Total Assets, $111.1 million was in the Permanently Restricted category.

Total Support and Revenue during FY2013 was $11.9 million, an increase of $1.7 million (17.1%) over FY2012. The major components of Support and Revenue were Investment Return Designated for Current Operations ($5.5 million), Services Fees ($2.6 million), Net Sales ($2.0 million), and Support ($1.8 million). The total amount actually raised through support during FY2013 is not reflected in the Cemetery’s operating budget, since most contributed funds are earmarked for special projects and are reflected in the Friends of Mount Auburn report. Total Expenses during FY2013 were $8.4 million (same as FY2012), as the staff worked strategically and responsibly to contain costs while maintaining the high standards of maintenance and service for which Mount Auburn is known. As we continue in these challenging economic times, we are confident that the future of Mount Auburn is bright.

n 2012, we developed a council of friends and advisors to assist Mount Auburn in defining its strategic direction and accomplishing its mission. The Council consists of local leaders, friends, and supporters who share our values and commitments in the areas of horticulture, historic preservation, educational programming, and landscape enhancement. Members of the Council serve as informal advisors, advocates, and ambassadors and meet for a full afternoon once a year. We would like to welcome and thank the members of Mount Auburn’s new Council of Visitors. Caroline Mortimer, Co-Chair Brian A.

HANK YOU! We would like to thank those individuals, foundations, and corporations who donated to the construction of the new entryway to Story Chapel and the greenhouse. The entryway to Story Chapel provides protection to those attending public events and private services and the new greenhouse enhances our ability to continue our innovative plant propagation practices. Both of these projects reinforce our commitment to sustainable operations. We are deeply grateful for the support of all of our donors in the stewardship of this unique cultural treasure that allows us to continue carrying out the intentions of our founders.
