How much do we need to raise?

We’re hoping to raise £500,000 from our supporters.

Thanks to you, we’ve made a fantastic start!

We launched our fundraising campaign in May 2018. Now, just four months later, we’ve already raised over £100,000, so we’re well on our way.

Of course, a Project as important as this costs rather more than £500,000. In total, it’s more like £4 million, once all the construction costs, professional fees and the activities we want to deliver are taken into consideration.

If we can raise the vital £500,000 from our supporters we can show just how much our community believes in what we can achieve together – and it will be all-important in helping us reach our overall target for the Project.

We’ve had fantastic support from some of the country’s leading grant-makers and funding agencies such as the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Garfield Weston Foundation as well as the European Union and the Friends of Rye Harbour Nature Reserve

Their support means that, so far, we’ve secured some £2.9m towards our overall £4m target.

But we can’t achieve this without your help, too. So why not join our growing team by donating whatever you can afford? Just donate here 

Together, we can make a difference for this amazing place – Rye Harbour Nature Reserve.
