  • In memory or in celebration

    Our places mean so much to so many people and supporting them makes a wonderful way to remember someone you've loved, or to celebrate a special occasion.

    More about donating in memory or celebration.

  • Virtual gifts

    Fed up of socks and hankies? Don't fancy facing the crowds at the shops? Our virtual gifts are the perfect solution. Help plant a fruit tree in an orchard, protect the habitat of an endangered red squirrel or save a foot of coastline. Great gifts for every occasion.

    Sponsorship

    Donating to charity doesn't have to be boring. If you enjoy doing fun runs, climbing mountains or sitting in a bath of baked beans, then do it for us! For more information and advice on sponsorship contact Caroline Bowyer.

  • Giving from overseas

    You can donate to any of our current appeals online using a credit card.  If you are in the USA you can support our work via the  Royal Oak Foundation.

  • Give as you Live

    Give as you Live is a scheme that is free to join, and each time you spend money online at 1,000s of stores, they give us a donation. Sounds easy? It is.

  • Virgin Money Giving

    If you're planning on raising money for us through collecting sponsorship, Virgin Money Giving is an easy way to collect the money - and as a fundraising partner, we don't end up losing your hard earned money to cover administrative costs.

  • People's Postcode Lottery

    Players of the People's Postcode are currently helping us fund the restoration of our recently discovered Rembrandt.

    People’s Postcode Lottery is a charity lottery raising funds for, and increasing awareness of, charities and good causes across Great Britain.

  • Corporate support

    If your company is looking to support the National Trust financially, we do welcome donations from companies of all shapes and sizes and can thank and acknowledge your support in a variety of ways both nationally and at properties.

  • Landfill Communities Fund

    The support we receive for projects from the Landfill Communities Fund is invaluable to the Trust. During the past 15 years funders such as Biffa Award, SITA Trust and Viridor Credits have supported projects including Coleridge Cottage, Morden Hall Park and Hatfield Forest.

    But we can only access this funding with the help of our donors and supporters.
