Comma butterfly - Holme Fen - Sarah Lambert

Your gift

We greatly appreciate every gift we receive, whether large or small, and all go towards protecting wildlife in your local area

The advantage of leaving a legacy is that you don't give anything now, but your gift will keep on protecting the endangered species and habitats that you love far into the future. Even relatively small amounts can help to give a future to wildlife - and bring joy to generations to come.

The different ways you can make a gift to the Wildlife Trust


A gift of all or part of your net estate (what is left after all taxes, costs and specific bequests have been paid), expressed as a share of percentage, e.g. a tenth or 10%. These gifts are safeguarded from rises in inflation and make sure your gift has the maximum impact intended.


A fixed sum of money, e.g. £10,000. Inflation can chip away at the value of these gifts so it is advised to update your will regularly.


A gift of a specific item or asset, e.g. books, a painting, shares. If you wish to leave us land please do contact us first so we can discuss your gift.
