Giving to the Thames Landscape Strategy

Over the past 25 years the Thames Landscape Strategy has transformed the world-famous Arcadian Thames through its advocacy, education and project work, winning many awards.

There is no statutory remit however, for any of the main riparian authorities to carry out or fund this type of work. Our success is only possible because of the generosity of our funders. It costs £325 a day to run the Thames Landscape Strategy before we can raise the funds for any additional projects to take place. Historically the organisation has been funded through the public purse but recent Government cut-backs have seen this source of money reduced significantly. Our funding partners now only provide a proportion of the costs needed to support the day-to-day running of the small but dynamic organisation.   In addition, the statutory funding to support river management is also decreasing year-on-year, we need to secure new sources of funding to carry out our conservation work.

Significantly, for every pound donated to the Thames Landscape Strategy in the past we have created £5 of environmental, social and economic benefit!

By giving to our charity the Father Thames Trust you can help support the work of the Thames Landscape Strategy.   There are a number of easy ways for you, your group or your business to donate to the Thames Landscape Strategy. It could not be easier. Simply choose which giving programme best suits your desired support and follow the link:

Legacies

Legacies can play an important part in helping the Thames Landscape Strategy’s work to conserve and enhance the Arcadian Thames. Making a will or an amendment to an existing will is more straight forward and less expensive than you might think (although it is recommended that you use a professional legal advisor such as a solicitor when drawing up your will).  Any legacy that you would kindly wish to leave the Thames Landscape Strategy should be directed through the Father Thames Trust.  If you wish, you may stipulate any particular aspect of our work that you would like to form your legacy.
