MAKE A DONATION TO THE NATIONAL TRUST
The National Trust is entirely dependent upon the donations of its members and supporters to be able to fulfill our mandate of protecting our agricultural, historical and environmental treasures. You can be sure that every penny of your donation will be put to good use.
Your donation will be used to fund the operations of the National Trust and to help us in our conservation work. You may also specify that your donation be used for a specific purpose, and your wishes will be honoured.
The National Trust respects the privacy of its members and donors. All information collected about you or your donation is fully protected and kept in the strictest confidence. We do not share or trade donor information with any other organizations.
