Legacies

Your gift today can make a difference tomorrow

Leaving a gift in your Will is a wonderful and lasting way to support us. Absolutely every gift we receive, whatever the size, makes a real difference.

If, like us, you believe that Westonbirt Arboretum is a truly special place that merits safeguarding for future generations, then you may wish to consider leaving a legacy to help secure its future.

“We decided to leave a gift for the arboretum in our Will because we believe in what you do, we want to help you for the future and it is a way of saying thank you for the things we have gained by visiting over the years.”

-David & Sandra Bidder

Donations from our generous supporters underpin the amazing work that takes place at Westonbirt Arboretum.

  • We help to plant 300 new trees each year, ensuring the long-term sustainability of the arboretum. Your donations support this planting and help us to make certain that trees thrive, providing funds to pay for stakes, ties, labels and planting equipment.

  • We fund a range of learning and engagement programmes, helping people to engage deeply with the natural world. Your donations pay for us to run trails, seasonal guided walks, family events, volunteering activities and community outreach programmes.

  • We take on innovative new projects, such as the development of the Treetop Walkway, which allows visitors to experience Westonbirt’s collection of 15,000 trees from an inspiring vantage point high above the ground. Your donations allow us to fund this and other key projects.

We support a sustainable future for the arboretum and continually fund projects to engage and inspire. You can feel assured that we’ll use your gift carefully and sensitively in whichever way you choose, so that others may enjoy Westonbirt as much as you do today.
