Philanthropy and major gifts

Beautiful woodland in the sun

As a philanthropist you will know that charitable giving is more than making a monetary donation. Philanthropy is about your personal engagement with a cause, your passion to make a difference and your desire to witness the impact your transformational gift will make.

Major gifts received by the Woodland Trust have the power to transform landscapes, protect wildlife and improve lives. Trees are a crucial element of a healthy, sustainable environment and we must take action now to protect and replace them, for the benefit of people, wildlife and our planet.

Our team are working with inspirational philanthropists across the world to turn barren fields into beautiful, flourishing woodlands full of life; restoring damaged ancient woods to their former broadleaved glory; and inspiring millions of people to enjoy and protect our natural world.

Where we have such support we have the ability to save some of our most precious habitats from destruction, safeguard vulnerable woods and create wonderful tree rich places. Together we can achieve a country rich in native woods and trees, enjoyed and valued by everyone.

If you are interested in making a major gift to the Woodland Trust or want to know how your support can make a big difference, please contact us or call Kerrie Jenkins on 0343 770 5824.
