Fundraise with us & raise money for wildlife!

Your local wildlife needs you! Thank you for choosing Cumbria Wildlife Trust

Fundraising for Cumbria Wildlife Trust is a brilliant way to help protect the wildlife you love - and it can be a lot of fun too!

Every single penny raised really does make a difference to wildlife on your doorstep, which in turn, helps nature further afield.

Whatever your chosen way of fundraising may be (and there are a gazillion wonderful ways you could go about it!), together, we can bring about the change necessary to help reverse nature’s decline in Cumbria. Do not underestimate the impact you can have - nature is in crisis and it needs you...

Getting started with your fabulous fundraising

If you’re wanting to crack on with your fundraising right away, please consider creating a page on Just Giving (you'll need to create a log in if you haven’t used Just Giving before, but this is very straightforward). Whether you’re planning a challenge event, a celebration event (asking for donations in lieu of presents), a work group crowdfunding event, or wish to fundraise in memory of someone - you’ll have everything you need to get you up and running on Just Giving.

Rally support!

Don’t forget to share your page far and wide - via email, through social media and via WhatsApp if you use it. Sharing your page is a great way to increase visits to your fundraising page and bump up those donations. It’s also worth making your Just Giving page as informative as possible - include photos if you can, and update it with new content regularly.

Thanking your supporters as your total increases also tends to go down really well, and can encourage others to donate. 

Alternatively, you may wish to use Facebook or Instagram - our pages are now set up to receive donations, so please feel free to use those platforms to go wild with your fundraising!

Go wild, raise money, and help your natural world!
