Love our National Park? Give a gift that will last for years

If you think that the North York Moors National Park is a special place, then why not give a special gift?

Your donations and bequests can make a real difference to the work we do, by helping to improve footpaths and bridleways, conserve wildlife habitats, and look after historic buildings and monuments.

Whether you want to commemorate a loved one, mark an occasion or give a unique gift, your donation will contribute to the care and enjoyment of one of the finest landscapes in the UK.

And with your generous help, we can continue to safeguard the things that make the North York Moors special to you.

Here’s how you can help

You can make a general donation to our fund, which we’ll use to make a real contribution to our ongoing work in the National Park – from restoring ancient woodland and wild flower grassland to improving well-used footpaths.

Or there are specific projects that you might like to consider donating towards.

To find out more or to discuss any aspect of making a donation, please get in touch with us using the contact information below.

What do you get?

Where appropriate, small, discreet plaques (to our standard design) can be placed on ‘furniture’ items on our Rights of Way, and a commemorative certificate of thanks, dedication or celebration is available on request, for any donation received.

You and your family would also know that through your generosity, you have helped look after the National Park for future generations to enjoy.

We are not able to put plaques in all locations, but every donated item is recorded on our register of donations and our website will be updated with examples of completed projects from time to time.
