The Trust is funded in a variety of ways. We are grateful to the City of Edinburgh Council for their grant support, we raise money through the Visitor Centre and each year we seek donations and create fundraising events - such as Plant Sales and Duck Races. You can use the PALPAL link below to pass on a donation to us, see the list below as it indicates ways your contribution can support different elements of our work:

£5 buys a sieve, bug box and clipboard to kit out a child on an educational visit
£5 buys a tree and tree tube to plant along the river
£10 buys a pair of gloves, litter picker and bags to kit out a volunteer.
£50 buys a pair of waders
£100 supports 1 volunteer for 1 year
£100 pays for our Community Officer to work with disadvantaged groups along the river for a day, supporting arts or heritage based projects.
£250 supports everything needed for a river clean up – including staff, administration and resources.
£500 would supply plants and tools for a wildflower planting project to improve riparian habitats
£750 would qualify a volunteer, under the Lantra training courses, to use a chainsaw or brushcutter
 £1500 provides all the tools, equipment and protective clothing we need for a year.
£1500 resources our schools education programme for a year

You can donate to the Water of Leith Conservation Trust on-line using a credit or debit card. If you pay tax in the UK, then we strongly reccomend that you select the "Gift Aid" membership options - as it allows the Trust to claim extra money back from the Government at no extra cost to you.
