Our natural world and places of historic beauty are at serious risk. Together, we can help nature recover, bring people closer to it, and ensure our shared history continues to inspire us all

We need your support

The National Trust was founded 125 years ago, on the belief that all people have an essential need for nature, beauty and history. It’s what connects us all and enables us to thrive. The coronavirus crisis has thrown this need sharply into focus once more.

Throughout the Trust’s history, the generosity of people is what has made the difference, one generation after another playing their part in caring for this country’s best-loved places. Your donation today will enable us to continue to look after these precious places, for everyone, for ever - thank you.

Nature needs you 

Trees that give us life, calming coastlines to walk along and bees that hum in blossoming flowers. Imagine if this all disappeared in the blink of an eye. You can make a difference when you donate today to help look after these natural spaces.

Plant a tree 

When you dedicate a tree to a loved one, you'll be helping us tackle climate change and give wildlife a home. Your dedication will ensure future generations can enjoy these green spaces for ever and you'll receive a certificate to commemorate your gift.

Leaving a legacy in your will 

Without gifts in wills the National Trust wouldn’t be able to look after all the places in our care. Now, more than ever, we need your help to protect the places that are special to all of us. Please consider remembering us in your will and leaving a lasting legacy for future generations.

Why we need your help

  • We look after 780 miles of coastline across the UK
  • We are facing losses of £200 million due to the coronavirus crisis
  • We care for more than 1 million items in our art and heritage collections
" As a charity we appreciate your support now more than ever in these difficult times. Over the past few months it’s become clear just how much we all need fresh air, open space and beauty. Your donation today will help look after all our special places for everyone, for ever."
- Lydia Lee, National Trust Fundraising Director
