Our Funders

The Anna Plowden Trust’s resources are limited, and we can only continue to fund our Bursary and CPD Grant programmes at the current levels thanks to the support of many trusts, foundations, companies and individuals.

Trusts and Foundations

The Trustees are most grateful to the following trusts, whose generous grants have support our work:

H B Allen Trust
Barbour Foundation
Carew Pole Charitable Trust
Charlotte Bonham Carter Charitable Trust
The Clothworkers' Foundation
Dulverton Trust
Englefield Charitable Trust
Ernest Cook Trust
Lord Faringdon's Charitable Trust
J Paul Getty Jr Trust
Derek Hill Foundation
Hiscox Foundation
Marsh Christian Trust
Pilgrim Trust
Sir James Knott Trust
St Andrews Conservation Trust
Thriplow Charitable Trust
Garfield Weston Foundation 

Their generosity, and continued commitment, are key to the success of the Trust and to our ability to help sustain training, standards and expertise in the conservation profession. 


Individual Supporters

We are also indebted to the many individuals who support our work through regular standing orders or one-off donations.  Many of these supporters are friends or former colleagues of Anna's and others are practising conservators.  

We are indebted to them all for their generous support.

If you would like to support the Trust's work please do follow this link to find out how.  If you are an Alumnus of the Anna Plowden Trust, because you previously received a bursary from us, your donation can be used to help fund our Alumni Bursary - a bursary for current students funded by past students.
