Give in celebration

Dedicate your birthday, wedding, anniversary or special occasion to David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) and raise vital funds to protect endangered species around the world.

We would love to be part of your special day and can support you with ideas and resources to help you raise as much as possible.

Set up a celebration page

A simple way of asking your friends and family to donate for a celebration fundraiser is by setting up your own giving page that you can share. Try setting up your own page on JustGiving or starting a fundraiser on Facebook.

Collect at an event

We can send you collection goblets, leaflets and other resources to help you collect and raise vital awareness around the work of DSWF and why you’re supporting us.

Wedding favours or gifts

Include DSWF on your big day by giving guests one of our beautiful pin badges as a meaningful and special thank you. All we ask is that you make a suggested donation of £1.50 per pin to help fund our critical work and cover costs.

Alternatively, you could ask guests to make a donation in lieu of wedding gifts. We can provide thank you notes for you to leave on place settings at your wedding breakfast. 

Donation certificate

Donating in honour of someone is a wonderful way to support wildlife. Simply tell us who you are giving on behalf of and we will send you a special donation certificate in the post. Or you can request an E-version if you prefer and would like to help save costs.
