Adelaide Botanic Gardens Foundation

The Botanic Gardens of Adelaide have provided the community of South Australia with a range of cultural, recreational, educational and scientific facilities for more than 150 years and are a living representation of the history of South Australia and the horticulture that drove early South Australian agricultural economy.

One of South Australia's most important and valued cultural resources

 Today the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide comprise three gardens - Adelaide, Mount Lofty, and Wittunga.

The Gardens specialise in scientific and educational displays of ornamental plants, both exotic and native, and seek to increase the knowledge and appreciation of plants and conservation both locally and globally for the ongoing benefit of the community. Over 1.8 million people visit the Gardens each year, including over 25,000 school children, who learn to enjoy and gain a better understanding of the plant world and its importance to our future.

The Adelaide Botanic Gardens Foundation, formerly the Gardens 150 Foundation, provides financial support, by raising funds to assist the Board of the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide and State Herbarium to preserve the rich botanical and architectural legacy. The Foundation was established in 2004 to assist with a fundraising campaign for a $10 million capital works program – the most significant upgrade of the Gardens in decades. The Foundation assisted in raising 50% of the total funds and in just 18 months, the overall target was achieved with a commitment from the State government for the balance.

Pitcher Partners has had a longstanding relationship with the Foundation through its Managing Principal, Tom Verco, who currently holds a position on the Foundation Committee. Tom has advised the Foundation on taxation issues predominantly related to GST and other accounting issues. He currently holds a position on the Foundation Committee as Treasurer.

The advice and support provided by Tom Verco and Pitcher Partners Adelaide has assisted the Foundation to proceed confidently with campaigns to benefit new projects such as the Garden of Health, Kitchen Garden, manage the Endowment Fund, and operate on a day to day basis using best practice for a not for profit Foundation.

We are pleased to be involved with one of South Australia’s most important and valued cultural resources.
