Thanks to the support of many friends, the Kodo Cultural Foundation was established in 1997 in order to increase the range of activities Kodo could engage in on their home of Sado Island. Its primary mission is to carry out non-profit activities focused on social education and the notion of giving back to the local community. If Kodo’s performances were likened to a garden, then the foundation would be the roots of the plants growing there. Its activities include holding workshops, planning the annual Earth Celebration, creating a research library, managing the Kodo Apprentice Centre and carrying out research into the performing arts.

On November 1, 2011, the Kodo Cultural Foundation was recognized as a Public Interest Corporation in Japan.
