Appeals

We depend on your donations to help us carry out our vital conservation work and to respond to urgent restoration needs. Thank you for your support

Here’s a selection of our current charity appeals for fundraising projects at our places.

Some support the National Trust’s more pressing needs in the wider areas of coast and countryside conservation, others focus on the urgent restoration needs of individual buildings, collections and gardens in our care.

Wherever you choose to give, we greatly appreciate your support, especially during this difficult time.

Protect the trees that protect us 

Trees are our natural armour in the battle against climate change. By looking after existing woodlands and planting new trees, we can grow a cleaner future together. Help protect the trees that protect us and donate to our Woodlands appeal today.

Help keep the coast alive 

Building sandcastles and paddling in the sea - what if all we had left of the coast were memories? As seas rise and storms rage, our shifting shores are transformed. Each coastal mile costs £3,000 a year to maintain and we need your help to keep the coast alive for everyone.
