Philanthropy and major gifts

Make a major gift and help us make life better water for communities most in need across England and Wales.

We’re the charity who look after and bring to life 2,000 miles of waterways. Your support is vital to help us bring wellbeing opportunities to millions of people.

Our canals and rivers run through some of the most heavily populated communities in England and Wales. By making a major gift you can make a big impact on our work to provide accessible green blue space to the people who need it most.

When you make a major gift to Trust we will:

  • allocate a personal point of contact within the Trust who will work with you to identify a specific area of our work where your donation will have the most value
  • provide access to staff and senior leadership as appropriate
  • regularly update you on the work you support as well as our wider impact, relevant to your interests
  • agree recognition with you, such as opportunities to mention your support in the press, thanking you in our Annual Report, naming opportunities or remaining anonymous
  • offer bespoke opportunities to experience our work on and off the water and see first-hand how your gift is making a difference.
