For life’s biggest milestones, give a gift that lasts forever. Donate in celebration to the places that make life special.

When you’re celebrating an important event, the most meaningful gifts are often the things you can't unwrap. It’s the memorable moments that make us – so, why not give a gift in kind? Mark your special occasions with a celebratory donation to the National Trust.

Whether it’s for a birthday, anniversary or wedding, celebratory donations can be the perfect gift for the loved one who treasures the landscapes around them.

Meaningful moments

When you donate in celebration to the National Trust, you'll be able to let us know who you're celebrating and why.

Perhaps you want to show your sister how happy you are about becoming an aunty by donating to protect the beach you played on as children. Maybe you want to remind your partner how much they mean to you with a donation to the place where you spent your first weekend away together. Or perhaps you're just looking for a wedding gift for the friends who have everything.

There's many different ways you can donate in celebration to the National Trust. Whether you choose to dedicate a donation to a specific place using our interactive map, have your celebratory donation recorded in one of the many memorial books at our places, or set up your own JustGiving page to encourage friends and family to donate - thank you.

Donate in celebration

Celebratory donations don’t just help to protect the places you and your loved ones enjoy. They’re a way of celebrating the great moments you’ve shared, and the many happy times you’ve got to look forward to.

You can donate in celebration to specific places and conservation projects, or contribute more generally to our ongoing care for special places. The choice is yours.
