What can I do?

There are many ways that you can fundraise for World Land Trust (WLT) and support global conservation.

From running a marathon to hosting a quiz night, or setting up a ‘Facebook Fundraiser’ to doing a sponsored event, with a little bit of imagination the possibilities are endless and there is something to suit everybody.

There are lots of ways to publicise your fundraising project. Start by telling your friends and family about it, and use social media to spread the word. Setting up a JustGiving page is a good way to announce your fundraising and keep track of donations.

For more information about fundraising for WLT, please see our leaflet at the bottom of the page.

WLT's INSPIRING FUNDRAISERS

‘RAINFOREST SAVIOUR’ TOBIAS

Fearless climber takes on Lake District peaks to raise £1,100 for the life of Borneo

“I decided to help protect the planet because it is being destroyed by people and it cannot save itself, and I learned that it’s easier to try fundraising than I thought”

WLT would like to extend a big thank-you to Tobias, the intrepid climber who took on more than 10 Lake District peaks during summer 2021 so that our partner HUTAN could extend a network of protected corridors of orangutan habitat in Borneo.

Tobias thought he’d raise £500 towards the protection of the Bornean rainforest he’d visited two years before – and yet he ended up raising £1,100 (or 220% of his target)! We at WLT thought our Borneo appeal would raise enough (£150,000) to save two plots of rainforest. Thanks to people like Tobias, the £420,000 we raised will save up to five.

Tobias and all our other supporters are the living proof: when we act to save nature, we make far more impact than we think.
