SharePoint Foundation 2010 contains the tools needed to upgrade your current environment. These tools are included in the 2010 out-of-the-box, so you can migrate from previous versions.
However, please note that the migration process cannot be taken lightly and requires time and most importantly planning. You should know that any time you migrate SharePoint data from one version to another, additional applications, web parts, and features may need to be reinstalled completely. SherWeb can assist you the best it can but cannot perform the actual migration for you.
