Make a Donation in Celebration of a Friend or Loved One

Celebrate a special occasion or milestone, such as an anniversary, wedding or birthday, with a gift to the Nature Trust in honour of a friend or loved one. We offer several options:

  • Give a Gift In Honour Of your recipient by making a donation to be used wherever it is most needed. You will receive the link to a beautiful e-certificate and introductory letter for them. Additionally, you will receive a tax receipt for the full amount of your gift.
  • Give a Gift of Nature. You can adopt a bird, turtle, family of birds or turtles, and acre of forest or coastline in honour of someone, and receive the link to a beautiful e-certificate and introductory letter for them. Additionally, you will receive a tax receipt for the full amount of your “adoption”. Look at the inspiring options on our Gifts of Nature page.

Make a Donation in Memory of Someone Who Has Passed Away

In memoriam or “in memory” donations are a wonderful way to honour or remember someone who has passed away, while making an important difference to land conservation in their name. You can create a lasting natural legacy of protected areas with your donation in memory of someone special. To honour the memory of someone with a memorial donation to the Nature Trust, donate online and check the box indicating this is a gift in memory of someone.

If you choose to provide us with the name and address for a family member of the deceased, we will write to them to let them know about your thoughtful tribute. You can also include a message that will be sent to the family member.

The person in whose memory your gift is made will be honoured on our Tribute Wall below.

Tax receipts are issued for all donations.
