Our Fundraising Promise

Our members and supporters are vital to our success, and without their generous support we wouldn’t be able to carry out our important marine conservation work. Donors and members provide us with the means to protect our seas, shores and wildlife and we are proud of the fact that over 80% of all our income is spent on conservation work - from campaigning for marine protected areas to clearing litter from beaches and working with industry to encourage more sustainable fishing practices.

We are incredibly grateful for the support we receive and take pride in ensuring that all our fundraising practices are honest, legal, transparent and respectful of our donor’s wishes and privacy. All of our staff and any agencies that work for us adhere to the strictest of fundraising guidelines as set by the Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB) of which we are a member.

Our promise to you:

  • We are committed to the highest of standards.

  • We will be open and transparent about how we raise money and how it is spent.

  • We will never sell your data to other companies or share your details with other charities.

  • We will communicate with you in a way that suits you and you can change this at any time, simply by letting us know.

  • If we call you on the telephone regarding your membership or other means of support, we will always check first that you are happy to speak with us.

  • We will never use pushy or aggressive fundraising techniques.

  • We fully support the strengthening of the fundraising regulations and the establishment of a new Fundraising Regulator.

Should you have any concerns about the way we fundraise, we have a robust complaints process. Please see our Fundraising Complaints Procedure and our Fundraising Complaints Policy.
