The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew is a global organisation and receives much-needed support from people and organizations around the world.

Plant science is the key to understanding all life on our planet and Kew holds the world’s greatest concentration of knowledge about plants. Kew works globally to reduce the extent and impact of climate change, to rescue species and habitats from destruction, and we urgently need your help. 

Behind the scenes of their beautiful botanic gardens, Kew undertakes a huge range of innovative science and conservation work. Over the past 250 years, Kew has developed as a global hub for botanic research and collections. The Herbarium is the centre of an information network that brings together botanists and mycologists from around the world, and houses over seven million specimens.

Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank Project is world’s largest global conservation project. By 2010, seeds from 10% of the world’s plant species were banked, including the rarest, most threatened and most useful species known. The second phase of this project focuses on combating threats to human wellbeing by safeguarding wild plant diversity and enabling its sustainable use.

The American Society for the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (AMSOC) was established in 1992 as a not-for-profit organization whose principle purpose is to raise awareness and financial support in the USA for the vital work of Kew. AMSOC is a tax-exempt charitable organisation with 501(c)(3) status and is eligible to receive tax deductible charitable contributions within the limits prescribed by law.
