Trusts and Foundations
The support of trusts and foundations, large and small, is vital to our work. With the help of your trust we can:
save buildings, give them new life and continue to look after them.
protect important landscapes.
care for the natural environment and unique, native species of Lundy, a small island in the Bristol Channel.
preserve traditional building skills.
implement a programme of educational activities for children.
Trusts and Foundations have recently helped to fund
-the rescue and restoration of a Georgian villa in Dorset.
-exceptional work at our existing buildings, such as repair work following storm damage in extreme weather conditions at coastal properties.
-a programme to eradicate rhododendron, an invasive plant on Lundy, which is threatening native species.
-our work generally. Some trusts and foundations award grants for us to use where the need is greatest.
