Every day, all around the world, we’re at the front line in the fight to protect our amazing planet from pressing threats like climate change. We’re helping to safeguard our most cherished wildlife and our most treasured wild places. But we can’t do it alone: our many successes are only possible thanks to the generosity of our supporters. Here’s how you can help us this Earth Hour.

We know fundraising can be hard work, so please do use one of the following safe ways to get your hard-earned cash to us. Thank you!
Set up an online fundraising page
Use JustGiving to collect your donations. It’s easy to set up and you can set a target for how much you want to raise. They also send your money to us directly and people who can’t join you on your big night can still support you.
If you’ve collected donations at your Earth Hour event, you could bank these in a bank account and give a donation online for the same amount. You can also encourage family and friends to donate in this way if you decide not to set up an online fundraising page. However, do note that you can’t give Gift Aid on money you have collected.
Send a cheque
Another way to donate funds you’ve raised is to send a cheque made payable to WWF-UK and send to WWF-UK, The Living Planet Centre, Brewery Road, Rufford House, Woking, Surrey, GU21 4LL. Please send this with an Earth Hour paying-in form.
