The South Downs Society is a registered charity which does not receive any money from local or national government – this means that we are able to act independently in our efforts to protect the South Downs National Park. We rely entirely upon the support and generosity of our members and benefactors. Every contribution is needed and very much appreciated.
Your donation will enable us to be vigilant and to take action where necessary. It will ensure that, both now and for generations to come, many thousands of people will continue to enjoy the peace and beauty of the National Park.
You can also send us a cheque or CAF voucher. Simply make your cheque or CAF voucher payable to ‘The South Downs Society’ and send it to:
The South Downs Society, 2 Swan Court, Station Road, Pulborough, West Sussex, RH20 1RL
You will receive an acknowledgement of your gift, a receipt and our sincere thanks for making it possible to continue our work protecting the National Park. Thank you.
Legacy and In Memoriam Giving – make a gift that lasts forever
Many of us are unable to give as much to charities as we would like to during our lifetime, but by leaving a legacy or gift we can help our favoured causes.
If you have had a lifetime’s pleasure from the beauty of the South Downs, why not help to secure their future by leaving a legacy to the South Downs Society in your will?
The Society is committed to protecting the beauty of the National Park for the enjoyment of future generations of young people and their families Legacies provide us with essential funds that we need to make long-term plans.
For example: A generous legacy received from the estate of the late Jean Matthews in 2009 enabled us to help fund an orchid conservation project, assist in establishing a new footpath linking two South Downs villages and support a forest garden project involving less advantaged young people.
We understand that decisions such as this are personal and that when making your Will the interests of your dependents must come first.
We recommend you seek the help of a solicitor on how to leave a legacy to the South Downs Society. You will need to give your solicitor the name, Registered Charity Number and address of the Society as follows:
The South Downs Society, Registered Charity Number 230329 of 2 Swan Court, Station Road, Pulborough, West Sussex, RH20 1RL.
If you have already made a will a simple codicil can be added. Whatever your choice, we suggest you consult your solicitor.
