How you can support the project

Support the Rye Harbour Discovery Centre Appeal

We are currently raising funds to enable us to commence the construction programme during 2018 and to open in 2019. We have already secured more than 40% of the required funds.

We are currently seeking to raise a number of major gifts for the campaign. Such donations are warmly appreciated and will put the Appeal firmly on the road to success.

For more information please download our Information & Donation Form

We shall be delighted to publicly recognise any individual, trust, company or other funder giving £10,000 or more as a Major Donor, with additional naming rights recognition linked to specific elements of the building depending on the level of gift (any requests for anonymity will of course be fully respected).

All Major Donors will:

  • Be invited to the official opening of the Discovery Centre
  • Have their names recorded on a Major Donor board within the building
  • Be offered Life Membership of both Sussex Wildlife Trust and Friends of Rye Harbour Nature Reserve

Major donations can be made by downloading and completing our donation form here.
