The Hortus botanicus Leiden cannot exist without the support of multiple institutions, donors, and sponsors. Since the foundation in 1590 the Hortus has always been part of Leyden University. In 2016 still, the oldest botanical garden of The Netherlands is inextricably bound to the oldest university. Furthermore, the Hortus has a very large group of Friends of the Hortus, who - with over 2000 members - keeps supporting the maintenance and upkeep of the monumental trees, the renovation of the century old buildings and making it possible to organize larger exhibitions.
