Fields in Trust

Philanthropy, Trusts and Foundations

If like us you’re concerned about the future of parks and green spaces, your support will help to ensure they are protected for good.

Do you believe that everyone - from the young to the young at heart - needs access to a local green space? Were you among the millions who realised just how important that was during the Covid pandemic lockdowns? 

Or do you also recognise, as we do, just how vital urban parks are in the fight against climate change and biodiversity loss?

Philanthropy makes it possible for us to undertake research, lobby the Government and continue to engage with landowners, policymakers and park users to highlight the value of parks and green spaces and to ensure they are protected for good.

We are so grateful for the support of the many individuals, charitable trusts and foundations who choose to make a transformational gift to support our work. Their generous, and often loyal, support has an enormous impact on our ability to protect, support and champion parks and green spaces for good.

Join our rewarding and inspiring journey

Our work simply wouldn’t be possible without the support and generosity of our valued supporters. Here are just some of the projects you could help make possible with your gift:

Protecting Parks Forever

Help us continue to engage with landowners across the UK and secure the legal agreements that ensure their parks are protected forever. With your help, we can ensure everyone has access to a protected park or green space within an easy ten-minute walk from home.

“Green Space Guardians”

Support the incredible team we call our “Green Space Guardians”. They work alongside landowners to ensure their green space protections are upheld and support them in making positive changes that benefit local communities and the environment.

Why Parks and Green Spaces Matter

Fund original research and data analysis so that we can lobby policymakers with evidence and authority about the need for protection, for the creation of more green spaces, and for investment.

The Linder Foundation is proud and very excited to fund the insights that are making such a positive difference to the future of green spaces across the country.
