The Kew Foundation was created in 1990. It is registered as an independent charity that aims to raise much needed funds from individuals, companies and trusts to support Kew’s work.
The Foundation is a Company limited by guarantee, regulated by the Charity Commission and governed by a Board of Trustees.

Kew receives roughly half of its income from central government, relying on income from other sources such as the voluntary monies raised through membership, donations and grants.

The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, currently employs around 800 staff at Kew Gardens and Wakehurst managed by its Director and overseen by the Board of Trustees.

Their business aim is to produce basic information about plant- and fungal-related matters and to communicate this to all their stakeholders.
The Trust also offers a wide range of educational programmes and dissemination activities
