Coast campaign appeal
When you think of something as magnificent and elemental as the coast, it’s difficult to imagine that it is under constant threat. Help us care for your coast, for ever, for everyone
How the appeal adds up
- Over the past 50 years, your donations enabled us to buy 574 miles of coastline
- Today we look after 775 miles of coastline around England, Wales and Northern Ireland
- Each coastal mile costs £3k a year to maintain
'I'm your coast, look after me'
Love the coast by giving today
Breathing the salty sea air, feeling sand on your toes, rock-pooling for weird and wonderful marine creatures or being awed by dramatic views. We love the coast and want to care for it.
Support our coastal vision with a donation
For the coast to flourish, it must be healthy and rich in wildlife. Your support will allow us to ensure its beauty and cultural heritage are protected and that it remains accessible for all to enjoy.
Help us work with nature
We can't stop coastal erosion and it’s not our job to try. But with your help we can carefully manage it to maintain access and nurture wildlife, keeping the coast healthy and beautiful for all.
Give today to safeguard your shores
Whatever makes the coast special to you, your support can have a lasting impact in ensuring our great coastline can continue to inspire us all.

Why give to the National Trust?
As a charity, we rely on the generosity of supporters to look after the coastline in our care. Not only do our supporters help to conserve wild beaches and protect the precious plants and wildlife that live there. They also ensure that future generations have the chance to witness the might of a stormy sea, explore the secrets of rugged rockpools, dive into stories of the past and make memories to treasure. With your support, we can continue to protect the irreplaceable. For ever, for everyone.
