Help us protect the countryside

Your gift could help to tackle the climate emergency, enhance our Green Belt and improve sustainable access or ensure that every child experiences a night under the stars and learns more about the natural world.

Make a difference with 1%

Anyone can leave a gift in their will, and every gift, however large or small, makes a difference. Even 1% of your estate can create a legacy that supports the future of the countryside.

CPRE has received gifts in wills from all corners of our community. We are very grateful to all friends and supporters who have remembered CPRE in this way. Their gifts today will help ensure our experts, campaigners and volunteers can continue their work after we are gone.

How to leave a gift in your will

Gifts, including legacy gifts, to a charity are inheritance tax free, and if you leave more than 10% to a charity like CPRE you can reduce the amount of tax you pay on your remaining taxable estate.

If you would like to include CPRE in your will, you can create or update your will with any practising solicitor. If you need to update your current will, we suggest you contact your solicitor to ensure that the changes you make are legally-binding.

When you are ready to make or update your will and would like to leave a gift to CPRE, here is the essential information you will need for your solicitor:

  • Name: Campaign to Protect Rural England
  • Address: Campaign to Protect Rural England, 15-21 Provost Street, London, N1 7NH
  • Charity Number: 1089685

If you’d like to enhance and protect an area that’s special to you, you can choose to leave a gift in your will to a local CPRE group. To do this, please check our local group finder and give your solicitor the group’s unique registered charity number and address.
