Make a Donation

As a small, independent charity, we rely on the generosity of individuals to support our work for Britain’s bumblebees.

A gift to us helps achieve our vision of communities and countryside that are rich in bumblebees and colourful wildflowers, supporting a diversity of wildlife and habitats for everyone to enjoy.

Here are some examples of how we use your donations:

  • £10 pays for printing and posting two information packs for volunteers to display in their communities.
  • £15 buys 2kg of seed for wildflower habitat creation in arable margins.
  • £25 helps cover the costs of a site visit to advise on sympathetic land management for wildlife.

Gift Aid makes your donation go even further - and doesn't cost you a penny! If you are a UK taxpayer, we can claim an additional 25p for every pound you donate. Note: you must pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax in each year at least equal to the tax that the charity will claim from HM Revenue & Customs on your Gift Aid donation(s).

Please find a Gift Aid Declaration Form here that you can print, complete and return to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.

“Bumblebees are one of the most endearing insect visitors to any garden. Their furry, colourful bodies and clumsy flight always raise a smile, but they also do an essential job. Without their pollination services many flowers would produce no seeds, and fruit and vegetable yields would suffer.”
