Trusts and Philanthropy

Why support DSWF?

In the last 50 years, 40% of all wildlife has been wiped out from our planet. Endangered species are in need of our help to protect them and their habitats, and to ensure their survival into the future.

David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) has been an unwavering voice for wildlife conservation since 1984, campaigning for the greatest protection of endangered species from grassroots to the world stage and working tirelessly to turn the tide on extinction.

What we can offer you

We work together with our trusts, foundations and philanthropists to create a personal experience that benefits us all. We have a range of projects to suit your individual interests, to ensure that you are as passionate as we are about protecting our wildlife.

We will tailor your giving experience to suit your needs, whether you want to support all of our work or if you have a specific project or species in mind. You will receive regular updates and photos from our ground-based conservation partners to ensure that you are always up to date with the incredible impact that your gift can give.

There will also be opportunities to attend exclusive events, meet with like-minded supporters and involve your family and children in your philanthropic activities.

We work to connect trusts, foundations and philanthropists with communities to build long-lasting relationships, through which we can create effective and sustainable change to endangered species.
