Fundraising for us terms and conditions

Abseiling down the cliffs at Stackpole, Pembrokeshire

Thank you for your interest in fundraising for the National Trust (registered charity 205846). These rules apply to all voluntary fundraising activity and by signing up to fundraise for the National Trust you agree to comply with them.

If you are under 18, you confirm that you have shown these terms and conditions to your parent/guardian, and they have agreed to accept responsibility for complying with these terms and conditions.

1. Fundraising 

1.1 You agree to organise fundraising activities as an independent supporter of the National Trust. You should therefore refer to raising money 'in aid of' the National Trust, rather than on the National Trust's behalf.

1.2 You agree that you shall comply with any instructions or guidance provided by the National Trust relating to your fundraising activity, but it is your responsibility to organise all aspects of any fundraising activity undertaken by you.

1.3 You will be responsible for any costs, taxes or expenses incurred or arising in connection with your fundraising activity.

1.4 Unless the National Trust has provided you with branded materials as a result of your registration, you may only use the National Trust name and logo for your fundraising activities with our written permission, and in accordance with the National Trust brand guidelines. To apply for permission, you will need to let us know how you propose to use the National Trust name and/or logo on your own materials by emailing: giving@nationaltrust.org.uk  and provide us with examples and/or samples of such use if we request it. 

2. Sponsorship money and donations 

2.1 You agree to pay all of the proceeds raised by your fundraising event to the National Trust as soon as possible after the event (and subject to any agreed timescale), and in accordance with the National Trust's instructions. You may not deduct any costs unless otherwise agreed with the National Trust.

2.2 You shall encourage your donors and/or sponsors to make Gift Aid declarations where eligible, which may enable us to recover basic rate tax on such donations. Further information about the Gift Aid scheme can be found on our website

3. Use of personal data and consent 

3.1 The National Trust will store and use the personal data you provide when you sign up to fundraise for us on the lawful basis of contract. We will use the information you provide to contact you about your fundraising activity and follow up on your progress. 

3.2 Your personal information may also be used for the purposes of sending communications to you where you have agreed that you would like to receive further information about the charity’s work.

3.3 All personal data held by us will be handled in accordance with applicable privacy laws and the National Trust's privacy statement which can be found on our privacy policy.  

4. Content 

4.1 If you provide photographs or videos taken during your fundraising activity to the National Trust, you agree that these may be used by the National Trust for commercial and/or fundraising purposes. By sending these to us, you are also confirming that anyone featuring prominently in the photograph or video is aged 18 or over, and that they have consented to their image being used in this way.

5. Liability 

5.1 You accept that any risks arising out of your fundraising activity are your responsibility, including liability for any injury or loss which may occur to you, your helpers or guests. You will therefore take all reasonable precautions to protect the health and safety of all those participating in, involved with or attending your activity.

5.2 You will comply with any applicable laws and regulations relating to your fundraising activity, including obtaining any necessary licenses, consents or permissions, e.g. if you are holding a raffle or lottery, or are proposing to sell alcohol.

5.3 You acknowledge and accept that the National Trust's insurance policy will not cover your fundraising activities.

5.4 You will not do anything that threatens the National Trust's reputation or name. If you do, the National Trust has the right to ask you to stop your fundraising activity immediately.
