At Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, we’re dedicated to harnessing the power of plants and fungi to end the extinction crisis and secure a future for all life on Earth. 

At the heart of that commitment are our Patrons — a community of like-minded individuals from across the world who share a passion for inspirational horticulture, cutting-edge science, botanical art, heritage landscapes and global plant conservation.

With Kew’s world-leading research, global partnerships and beloved gardens – home to the world’s most diverse collections of plants and fungi – we’re using our trusted voice to shape policy and practice worldwide.

As a Patron, you are helping us foster a deep and lasting relationship with the natural world for generations to come, and build a greener, more sustainable future for all.

As a charity we rely on your critical support, not only to sustain the gardens, but to protect global plant and fungal biodiversity for the benefit of our planet and humanity.

Together, we will end the extinction crisis and help create a world where nature is protected, valued by all and managed sustainably.
