Invest in the project

Investment opportunities – £15,000+

Here at the VWT, staff and trustees are committed to making the Pine Marten Recovery Project a success, ensuring that as a result of our efforts the pine marten population makes a recovery in England and Wales. If you share this vision and want to help with a significant donation, we would love to work with you.

I am looking for investors with contributions in the region of £15,000 or more to support our Pine Marten Recovery Project, which will require £1.2 million of funding over six years. The Vincent Wildlife Trust will be providing £400,000 of this to part-match funder contributions. This, together with Gift Aid, will make your funding impact stretch further.

A major investment over several years will make you a valued partner in this ground-breaking carnivore recovery project. I would want to work closely with you to find the right level of investment for your area of interest. You can choose to get fully immersed in the project by participating in field activities and frontline work or just ask for regular updates on an arms-length basis. If you are living overseas, I will find a solution for enabling financial support to reach us.

Please contact me to discuss your needs further – or tel. 01531 636441.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.
