Philanthropic giving

By making a significant gift to the RSPB you will help us protect and improve habitats in the UK and beyond, reversing the decline of threatened birds and other species that depend upon these precious places.

Nature is in big trouble, but we've got big plans to save it

From now until 2030, we'll be focusing on some ambitious plans and targets - working together with you to collectively change the fate of nature.

  • We aim to acquire 250km2 of new land in the UK and work in partnership to deliver results for birds, nature and the climate at a greater scale

  • We’ll continue to focus on the most threatened species in the UK, the UKOTs, along the East Atlantic Flyway and in selected areas around the world, to help their recovery through a combination of research, partnerships, landscape-scale conservation, habitat restoration and our policy work

  • Our work with the food and farming community will develop to ensure the majority of UK agricultural land is contributing positively to the recovery of nature and supporting a net-zero economy

Birds without Borders

“We wanted to support 'Birds without Borders' to help halt the catastrophic decline of four important migrant species which has occurred in the last fifty years. Conservationists have now been able to uncover new evidence of the causes of the decline, resulting in the EU banning the shooting of turtle doves at certain times of the year. It has been hugely fulfilling to see this project make such important advancements and to witness the impact of our support”

Charles and Angela Chadwyck-Healey, Cambridge

Gough Island Restoration

“Being involved with the Gough Island Restoration Programme from the research and planning stage right up to now, with the delivery of the eradication operation underway, has felt like a tremendous journey. Through attending events, reading newsletters, and watching video footage from conservationists on the island itself, it has been truly exciting to see such an ambitious undertaking come to fruition.”

Julia Maynard, London

Albatross Task Force

"We have been fortunate enough to see these beautiful birds in the wild so when we heard through the RSPB about the aim to cut the fatalities that occur around fishing vessels, we were keen to help. Since we began supporting this project, we’ve had regular updates and have seen how our support is making a difference. We feel we have personally been able to help drive progress in this area and our involvement has been very worthwhile."

Christine and David W, Cumbria
