How we are funded
How we raise funds for our work
Avon Wildlife Trust is your local wildlife charity, working with others to protect wildlife and wild places and bring people closer to nature.
We rely overwhelmingly upon the support of our members and donors. We are grateful to every one of you for supporting Avon Wildlife Trust and being part of creating a wildlife-rich West of England.
To help us do even more, we also apply for and receive funding from statutory grants, lotteries, charitable trusts and corporate partners.
Grants are usually awarded for specific projects. Some of our main sources of support include: the players of the National Lottery; players of People’s Postcode Lottery; The Landfill Communities Fund (Biffa Award and Enovert Community Trust). Some Local Authorities and Government Agencies and Departments also support specific projects.
