You can help raise funds for the Trust in all sorts of ways, from organising a sponsored run to hosting a dinner party, recycling your old phone to selling unwanted items on eBay.

Whatever amount you raise – large or small – it will go straight into helping protect and conserve Scotland’s wildlife for the future. Thank you for your support!

Sponsored events

Fundraising is vital to the work of the Scottish Wildlife Trust, which is why people from all walks of life get involved in raising funds for the Trust each year.

Whether it’s a long distance walk, 10,000ft parachute jump or shaving your hair off, whatever you do to raise funds for the Trust is greatly appreciated, and we hope you feel a great deal of satisfaction from making a difference.

We can help you with setting up a sponsorship web page and promoting your event – we’ll even throw in a free t-shirt! If you’d like to help us raise more and organise a fundraising event, please call Zoe on 0131 312 4772 and ask for a Fundraising Pack to help you get started, we’d love to know what you’ve got planned!
