"It's not about the money..."

Sadly, it is.  As much as we would love to "forget about the price tag", we can't; but we are incredibly creative and we hope you'll agree "value for money". 

As a charity, the Trust relies on a mixture of grants, donations, membership and legacies to carry out its vital work.  The grants which the Trust has relied on for it's land management activities are coming to an end and so it is now time to increase income from donations and subscriptions.  During 2019 the Trust has started to increase it's fund raising activity significantly, with the support of Two Green Magpies (more information regarding this below).  We are registered with the Fundraising Regulator and are members of the Institute of Fundraising which shows our commitment to support the Code of Fundraising Practice in all of our fundraising activity.

Income in 2018/2019

Membership subscriptions = 1.3%

Donations & Gifts = 14.3%

Legacies = 6.3%

Grants for nature conservation, access, education and archaeology = 76%

Investments = 0.8%

Ecological and land management consultancy = 1.4%


Recent restricted funding from the Halpin Trust has enabled us to enlist the support of Two Green Magpies to implement new fundraising systems and processes allowing us to develop our first dedicated fundraising programme over the next 12 months. Developing easy and cost-effective ways for people who love Scilly and it's wildlife to support us, will enable us to become more financially resilient, so that we can carry out even more wildlife conservation work in Scilly.

If you feel you may be able to help us keep doing what we do (and a whole lot more besides), for the benefit of nature and people, then please check out our Philanthropy Page; here you will find more information regarding recent gifts and the difference they've made.  If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact Marie and the Two Green Magpies team!
