How do gifts help?

Major gifts propel our projects forward, benefitting both the trees and the people who enjoy the arboretum. Here are a couple of current appeals which your gift could help complete:

Westonbirt Wood Project

There is an exciting opportunity to contribute a major gift to the Wood Centre Project. By helping to complete this journey you will be promoting education, participation and conservation of the arboretum’s trees. If you're interested in helping us to celebrate the full life cycle of our trees, please get in touch.

Community Programmes

Disability, disadvantage and social isolation can all prevent people from getting outdoors. Our community programmes give people the chance to get the benefits of being amongst the trees. We want everyone to experience the positive impact of nature. If you're interested in supporting our community programmes, please get in touch.

Make a donation

Make a general donation and we'll direct it where it's most needed

"When you give to Westonbirt, however you choose to do that, you become part of the arboretum’s community of supporters and your money helps to underpin this special place."
