John NorbeckDear Friends,

The Annual Appeal for Old Westbury Gardens represents ten percent of our yearly operating budget. Of particular significance is the fact that every tax-deductible dollar goes directly to sustain our operations.

Old Westbury Gardens is already one of the country’s most recognized and valued public gardens. However, we want not only to maintain the property, a massive undertaking in itself, but also to improve and enhance its glories. A center for culture, entertainment, and relaxation for over a half a century, Old Westbury has also earned another distinction: that of being a world-class learning center. In this ideal environment, with our talented staff, our 200-acre classroom has no bounds – except, of course, the inescapable one of financing.

Your donation this year will enable us to continue to offer an outstanding visitor experience, quality programs, and continue the standard of preservation and horticulture long associated with Old Westbury Gardens. I hope you share my enthusiasm for the work ahead, and that you will join me in making this year’s appeal the most successful fundraiser in the Gardens’ history.


John S. Norbeck
President & CEO
