Corporate Volunteering

As part of your volunteering experience we ask corporate volunteer groups to make a donation towards staff time and running costs. Your donation helps to carry out important volunteering efforts which support wildlife and conservation, public access and archaeological knowledge. Please reference your company when making your donation.

Animal accidents reduction campaign

Each year around 50-60 animals are injured on New Forest roads. Your donation can help us to educate drivers and take action to reduce the number of animal accidents on the roads. Please refence our animal accident reduction campaign when donating. Animal accidents reduction campaign

Please note:

We receive many enquiries each year for memorial benches, trees and plaques. Sadly we are unable to help with these requests as we are not a land-owning organisation.

Our fundraising promise

We want you to feel confident that you are giving to a responsible organisation when you support our work.

We are therefore committed to ensuring that:

  • We are clear and transparent about any funds that we raise and what they are spent on
  • All funds raised for a particular project will be used only for that project. (If in exceptional circumstances this is not deemed possible, then the funding will be returned to the donor when contact details are available. When donor contact details are not available, then the donation will be spent on other activities which protect and maintain the Forest)
  • We are accountable. Your donation is important to us. The New Forest National Park Authority accounts are fully audited and are available on request. However, if you have any further queries, please get in touch.
