Take your place in England's story by helping to give the nation's heritage a future.

Your support plays a vital role in keeping England's history alive. Our historic places may have stood for hundreds, even thousands of years, but without on-going care, we will lose them to time and the elements. As a charity we rely on your generosity to ensure that as many people as possible enjoy the buildings, landscapes and objects that tell the story of England over the past 6,000 years.

    Leadership Giving

    Philanthropic support ensures that we are able to care for England's heritage for future generations to enjoy.  As we begin our journey as an independent charity, we depend increasingly on the generosity of our community of individual supporters.

    By making a leadership commitment to English Heritage you will become part of the story of England, bringing you closer to buildings, monuments and artefacts spanning 6,000 years of history and covering the breadth of the country.

    To discuss your interest in supporting English Heritage, please contact Melanie Geelan, Individual Giving Manager at or 020 7973 3798.
