The Adelaide Botanic Gardens Foundation is dedicated to supporting the future of the Botanic Gardens of South Australia.

Although the Gardens receive annual funding from the South Australian Government, we also rely on the generous support of the community, individuals and business to contribute to the nurturing and growth of our beloved Gardens.  

The Adelaide Botanic Gardens Foundation raises and administers community funds for the purpose of scientific research, education, acquisition and maintenance of living collections and for the long-term financial security of the Gardens.  

Funds raised through the Foundation assist the Gardens with their important work in scientific research and education, and the maintenance of living collections.

The Foundation has reporting and fiduciary responsibility to the Board of the Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium. The Foundation is governed by a Committee that provides overall strategic direction and monitors the financial performance and distribution of funds. The Foundation is audited and presents its financial statements to the Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium Board annually. The Adelaide Botanic Gardens Foundation is the trustee of the not-for-profit ‘Adelaide Botanic Gardens Foundation Fund’ (ABN 27 967 437 460), and has deductible gift recipient status for taxation purposes.
