Whether it’s creating a membership and annual resource development plan or growing your capacity through major gift, capital or endowment campaigns, JB+A and Eric Tschanz bring the experience and expertise you need to achieve fundraising success for your botanical gardens.

JB+A first partnered with Powell Gardens (Kansas City’s Botanical Gardens) to conduct a Feasibility Study for its Heartland Harvest Garden – at the time, the largest edible landscape in the United States. JB+A recommended a $6,500,000 campaign goal and worked with Powell Gardens in a campaign that raised $9,300,000, including a $2,500,000 matching gift. Most recently, JB+A worked with Powell Gardens during a Feasibility Study and $18,500,000 Campaign combining new capital projects with growing the endowment.  This campaign, the largest in the Gardens’ history, also featured a $7,500,000 1:1 matching endowment gift from the Powell Family, which was leveraged for planned and outright gifts.

You too, can grow your gardens through philanthropy. Contact Eric Tschanz to learn more:
