Invest in VWT

Investment opportunities – £15,000+

Here at the VWT, through focused and innovative work on threatened mammals, staff and trustees are committed to playing their part in helping to safeguard the future of our natural world.

If you value our natural environment too and would like to make a significant donation to help us achieve even more, we would love to work with you.

I am looking for investors with contributions in the region of £15,000 or more to support our mammal conservation and research activities. In many instances, this can be part-matched by our Founder’s investment legacy, which together with Gift Aid will make your funding stretch further.

A major investment in the Trust over several years will make you a valued partner in everything we do. I would want to work closely with you to find the right level of investment for the right kind of project – whether it is a specific species recovery project or the development of our charitable business activities. You can choose to get fully immersed in our work by participating in field activities and frontline work or just ask for regular updates on an arms-length basis. If you are living overseas, I will find a solution for enabling financial support to reach us.

Please contact me to discuss your needs further – or tel. 01531 636441.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.

Dr Lucy Rogers, CEO
