Capital Campaign

The Phase I Learning Annex of the Mary N. Porter Welcome Center is anticipated to cost $1.8 million. To date, the Board of Trustees has raised initial Lead Gifts and pledges totaling 1,400,000 toward this initial Phase I goal, including the lead naming gift- a $500,000 grant from the Mary N. Porter Legacy Fund. Read more about the new Welcome Center with this EXECUTIVE SUMMARY (large file may download slowly).

MARY N. PORTER WELCOME CENTER​

Flamingo Gardens is planning for a new $3.8 million 8,000 square foot Welcome Center for visitors. The current building is 67 years old and its original wood frame construction is in severe disrepair. Its facilities are outdated and inadequate, and no longer meet the current needs of the 188,000 plus annual visitors to Flamingo Gardens. 

Phase I, The Learning Annex of the Mary N. Porter Welcome Center, will provide 3000 sq. ft. of multi-purpose meeting, classroom, and exhibition space with new ADA restrooms. Phase II will provide a new entrance to the botanical gardens, ticket booth, customer service center, gift shop, volunteer and rental department offices, cafe with courtyard seating, and additional new ADA restrooms. Parking will be expanded with new front entrance signage and landscaping.

IN November 2017, the Board of Directors of the Community Foundation of Broward announced a total $1.9 million in grants from the Mary N. Porter Legacy Fund to fund capital projects at four area nonprofits, including the grant to Flamingo Gardens.  Read Press Release​​
