Together, we have already achieved so much. We’ve defied the nuclear arms race. We stood between the whales and the harpoons. We protected the Antarctic. We saved rainforests from the chainsaws, and stopped toxic waste dumps in our seas.
There is still so much to do to defend our oceans, protect rainforests, and promote renewable energy. Leaving a legacy, large or small, will help our vital work. In fact, gifts in wills are at the heart of everything we do – they now pay for around one in six of our campaigns.
Leaving a gift is simple
Arranging a will can seem daunting, but with all the details to hand it can be easier than many people think. That’s why we’ve prepared all the information you need to leave a lasting gift to Greenpeace.
It’s important to note that there are two Greenpeace organisations in the UK:
- Greenpeace Ltd is the one most people know about which runs campaigns and exposes environmental injustices. Because of restrictions on what political campaigning charities can do, it’s a limited company
- Greenpeace Environmental Trust is a charity which expands public understanding of the environment, commissioning scientific research and supporting key Greenpeace campaigns in other countries.
You can leave a gift to either one and you may want to speak to a solicitor to decide which is best for you. Please use the registered charity number 284934 for Greenpeace Environmental Trust or registered company number 01314381 for Greenpeace Ltd. Also include the registered address: Canonbury Villas, London, N1 2PN
