School Fundraising

We believe in inspiring our children and young people to help them learn about wildlife and the threats that endanger their survival. We want to enable them to do something about it and to make a difference to the natural world.

Our dedicated DSWF Education Team would love to hear from your school if you would like to support DSWF through your learning and fundraising. Take a look at the education section of our website for more information on our offer, or contact our Education Team at [email protected] or on 01483 272323 to get the ball rolling.

Charity of the Year

If you and your school are thinking about your Charity of the Year nomination for the next academic year, please consider choosing David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF). 

Time is running out for some of the world’s most endangered animals and sadly this generation of children will feel the biggest impact from decisions made over the next few decades to protect it.

By choosing DSWF we can help your children to feel empowered and to learn about wildlife and the difference they can make.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you.

A Gift Aid declaration allows David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking this box I confirm that I want to gift aid my donation and any donations I make in the future or have made in the past four years to David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. I am a UK taxpayer and I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year, it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
