Leave a legacy for wildlife

When it comes to writing your will, we would always expect you to look after your loved ones first; however many find that after that, they have space to remember a charity in their will.

Anyone can leave a gift to Kent Wildlife Trust. It’s one of the easiest and most valuable ways you can support our work and costs you nothing now. Any gift, no matter what size, will help make a big difference to our countryside now and into the future.

We are proud of what we have achieved; however, there is still so much to do, as wildlife continues to decline at an alarming rate. This is why we are asking for you to consider leaving Kent Wildlife trust a gift in your will.

Do something incredible to protect Kent’s Wildlife


Gifts in Wills allow us to purchase and restore new nature reserves like Nemo Down (left), helping to give wildlife a future in Kent. They also help us to plan for the future.

At a time when nature is in trouble, Gifts in Wills give us a chance to turn things around for our wonderful Kentish wildlife and their habitats.

These Gifts can also help us educate the next generation on the importance of nature, and why it is so crucial that we protect it.

We want your gift to be used in the way you want it to be, so please contact us for an informal chat about the ways you wish your gift for nature to be used.

“We liked the fact that our money would be used to help protect wildlife in our local area, and there was a sense that we were doing our bit to protect the environment for future generations to come”

Last year over 20% of Kent Wildlife Trusts income came from gifts in wills. Without them, we could not continue to protect your treasured wildlife and green spaces in Kent.

a timeline showing the incredible difference gifts in wills have made over the past 60 years

It wouldnt have been possible to work in the way that we have over the last 60 years without the kindness of people leaving us Gifts in their Wills. Many of our much loved reserves have been purchased entirely, or partially with these gifts; these include Nashenden, Burham, and crucually, our head office here at Tyland Barn.

Future gifts allow us to continue to purchase new land, and restore and manage our current reserves now and into the future.
