The Guild of the
Chicago Botanic Garden
Founded in 1998, our membership comprises more than a hundred enthusiastic civic leaders from Chicago and its surrounding suburbs.
We are committed to assisting the Chicago Botanic Garden by promoting it to a larger audience, raising funds for its support, and providing services that advance the Garden's mission.
We are very proud of the support the Guild has provided the Chicago Botanic Garden. Since our formation, we have raised more than $2.5 million and introduced hundreds of new friends to the Garden; we also hold the honor of being the first board to reach 100 percent participation in the first phase of the Campaign for the Chicago Botanic Garden.
The Harvest Ball is the Guild's main fundraiser. We are proud to direct the proceeds of this evening to support the development of a new educational display garden for families that will help to inspire a lifelong interest in plant science and respect for our environment.
Your support will enable the Chicago Botanic Garden to reach, teach, involve, and transform children's lives. They are our future.
