We rely on the support of charitable trusts and foundations to carry out many of our projects and conservation work. These range from looking after spectacular areas of coast and countryside and restoring precious objects, to enabling more people to get involved with our activities.

Get in touch

If you have a charitable trust or are involved with a charitable grant-giver we would love to work with you. Please email our team for more information.

Examples of charitable trusts

We would like to thank all of our charitable trust and foundation supporters. Here are some examples to show the difference trusts and foundations have made through their support.

The Jeremy Willson Charitable Trust

The Jeremy Willson Charitable Trust was set up in memory of Jeremy Willson, by his family. The charity supports projects that reflect Jeremy’s passions for athletics, geology, adventure and the environment. The Jeremy Willson Charitable Trust has been a loyal supporter of the Green Academies Programme (GAP project) throughout its lifetime, contributing to life-changing opportunities for disadvantaged urban communities.
