What is the Great School Give?

Help save the world’s most threatened habitats by supporting The Great School Give – an eco-friendly fundraising campaign launched in October 2017 by World Land Trust (WLT).

All you have to do is measure or estimate the size of your school grounds, whether it’s the buildings, playground or school field

Use the Great School Give calculator below to work out the size of your school and then make the donation suggested.

At 2.5p per square metre, a donation of £25.00 will match the size of a medium-sized playground -1,000 square metres – so it won’t break the bank!

Donations to the Great School Give will go to WLT’s Buy an Acre fund which purchases forest in urgent need of protection.

The Great School Give is championed by Children’s Author and WLT Trustee Nicola Davies, a long-standing supporter of World Land Trust with a passion for helping children explore and understand nature.
