Make a donation

All donations of whatever size will be warmly welcomed and used to help protect wildlife for the future and for the people of Essex.


Donations are a great way to support the wildlife of Essex, contributing towards education, purchasing nature reserves, restoration work and on going management to protect these precious sites for the benefit of wildlife.


Essex Wildlife Trust is actively campaigning for many important conservation issues.

Fundraising Ideas

Every penny donated to Essex Wildlife Trust makes a real difference and if you would like to help us raise money for the Trust how about holding your own fundraising event.

Legacies - Have you a will for wildlife?

Legacies, whether large or small are crucial to the work of the Trust and some of our greatest achievements for wildlife have been made with the support of legacies.


Volunteering is a great way to support our work, whether you help with managing a reserve, work in one of our visitor centres or in the office.
