Remembering a loved one
Support the birds they cared about
Remember a close friend or relative by making a donation to BTO to support the birds they loved; whether they were excited by the birds in their garden, the moment they saw a Kingfisher dart down river, or the joy of the first Wheatear, arriving back after it's winter absence.
A donation to the BTO is a unique way to ensure that future generations will benefit from the same unforgettable experiences by enabling us to carry on the research and monitoring work that is so important for bird and habitat conservation.
A donation in their memory
Some people choose to set up a special 'in memory' page to celebrate the life of a friend or relative and raise funds for a cause they supported. You may wish to take a look at JustGiving, Muchloved and memorygiving to create your own personalised page.
Others ask for donations to be made to charity rather than spent on flowers at the funeral. Your funeral director can help with this. Ask for cheques to be made out to the British Trust for Ornithology which can be sent with details to Fundraising Team, BTO, The Nunnery, Thetford, IP24 2PU. We can then acknowledge your kind gift.
If you have any questions or would prefer to talk to someone, please contact our Fundraising Team on 01842 750050 (or by email - fundraising [at] bto.org).
- Make a one-off donation online. Please send details about the person you are remembering to fundraising [at] bto.org.
- Make a regular gift via direct debit (monthly/quarterly/annually) to commemorate a special occassion.

Where are the young women in birding?
As we continue to work on making birding more inclusive, how do young women perceive birding? Five young birders share their experiences.
