Project Goals: 

This grant enabled the New York Botanical Garden to meet a funding challenge made by the Mertz Trust to support the Garden's efforts in closing budget gaps created by a decline in its endowment, government funding, and earned income as a result of the global financial crisis. The Garden's efforts have resulted in bringing in an excess of $1 million dollars in new donations. The funds provided by the Trust and the Tinker Foundation helped the Botanic Garden pay general operating expenses.
