Bequeathed for the National Trust

The National Trust 

Our founders believed that nature, beauty and history are for everyone and so set up the National Trust to look after the nation’s coastline, historic sites, countryside and green spaces.

We are now the biggest conservation charity in Europe, caring for over 250,000 hectares of countryside, 780 miles of coastline and 500 historic properties, gardens and nature reserves, for everyone, for ever.

As the UK's leading conservation charity we rely on gifts in wills from people like you to look after nature, beauty and history for all.

Your gift could support rangers, conservation experts and volunteers to replant hedgerows and wildflower meadows, repair coastal paths, protect historic homes, and so much more.

There is no obligation to leave a gift to the National Trust, although many supporters choose to do so after looking after their family and friends. While membership is absolutely crucial to our work, it is only a third of our income and as a charity we depend on the generosity of people leaving gifts in their wills. If this is something that you are considering, then thank you very much indeed.

Each and every gift makes a lasting difference to the places you love.

Thank you.
