When you’re celebrating an important event, the most meaningful gifts are often the kind you can’t unwrap. Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or wedding, a celebratory donation to the National Trust can be the perfect gift for a loved one who treasures nature. Find out how to donate in celebration, dedicate a tree or request a physical dedication.

Why donate in celebration?

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

Ways to gift

Donating to a specific place

You can donate to a specific place or a conservation project close to your loved one’s heart, or simply contribute more generally to the ongoing care of the special places in our care.

Physical dedications

If you would like to celebrate a loved one or a special occasion with a physical dedication, such as a tree or bench, please get in touch with that specific place. You can find contact details on the homepage of the place you wish to contact.

Unfortunately, the demand for these types of celebratory gifts is often higher than capacity, so please consider dedicating a tree in celebration as an online alternative.

Add us to your gift list

Why not invite family and friends to celebrate your milestone by making a gift donation in your name? You can make it easy for them to donate by setting up a JustGiving page. Add your own photos and message for a personal touch and share it with your nearest and dearest in advance of the big day.
