Support CPRE, the countryside charity, through your business

Hands holding autumnal leaves

We’re CPRE, the countryside charity. Partner with us and together we can make positive progress for the countryside.

A proud history, a positive future

We campaign on the things that really matter to communities – saving farmland, pushing for new high-quality housing for local people and standing up for the Green Belt, the lungs of our cities. But we’ve also been instrumental in changing the face of the countryside at national level, campaigning successfully against fracking and for the plastic bag charge. With almost a hundred years of history, our provenance speaks for itself; we were the original drivers of National Parks and AONBs.

We stand for the future, for a countryside for absolutely everyone to enjoy and for sustainable, climate-friendly progress. We seek to partner with like-minded, purpose-led companies committed to making a positive impact on our country’s environment and the communities that live within it.

In supporting our work through corporate giving, you’ll be telling the world that you’re committed to the environment and to the unique landscapes that England has to offer. This includes recognising that we’re all changing and adapting to new ways of living, of promise and possibility, and of the essential role that the countryside and its communities play in our economy and wellbeing.

Respected, admired, authoritative

In choosing to work with us, you’re partnering with a highly respected campaigning organisation with over 75,000-strong supporter and member base.

We’re reasoned and authoritative in our arguments, independent and principled in our debate and constructive in our proposals. We’re known in parliament and our sector for robust research; we do our homework, and always pay attention to the details – just the sort of partner you want to support.

And with our local and national reach, your help works extra hard. In 2018, 42% of charity funding from businesses went to national charities, and just 20% at local level. In partnering with CPRE, you’re supporting both.

You don’t need us to tell you the impact that supporting charities has on customers’ views of you: 2017 research showed that 43% would have a more positive opinion of a business that gave to charity, and a fifth would choose them over competitors.

Partnering opportunities for business

Partnering with us will help you to:

  • Reach new audiences through cause-related marketing opportunities and sponsorship
  • Stand out as the leader in your industry for protecting England’s landscapes
  • Align with a credible environmental charity and political influencer
  • Engage with people across the country on important environmental issues
  • Increase customer acquisition and loyalty through demonstrating your positive values
  • Help offset your carbon footprint by planting and restoring much-needed hedgerows.
