10 Directors have been appointed to the Board of the new National Arboretum Canberra Foundation Limited, which has been established to promote and coordinate fundraising activities to benefit the National Arboretum.
The new Directors of the Foundation Board are highly skilled and passionate about making a direct and tangible contribution to the future of the Arboretum through sourcing benevolent contributions.

The not-for-profit Arboretum Foundation has been formed to promote and coordinate philanthropic contributions to the Arboretum's development and will play a key role in achieving the objectives of the Arboretum.
The new Foundation has great potential to tap into community goodwill and support for the Arboretum and make a real difference to our community.
The ACT Government will continue to fund core infrastructure at the Arboretum, however the Foundation will play a key role in raising funds for infrastructure projects, research projects and education programs that fall outside of government's funding capabilities.
The Arboretum Foundation will complement current fund raising efforts including the valuable work of the Friends of the National Arboretum Canberra.
