Donations from individuals and organisations are one of the Trust’s most important funding sources. At the moment, about 15% of our funds come from donations, mainly from anglers. The Trust intends to expand this donor pool to include other river users and anyone interested in healthy river management.

Healthy rivers and healthy native fish populations are what economists call a ‘public good.’ Everyone benefits from healthy rivers, yet there is no mechanism for ‘everyone’ to contribute to them. The burden falls on a small number of landowners and users, who do derive a direct benefit from the rivers in the form of salmon fishing rents. Government agencies have some responsibility for the health of rivers, but few resources. Trusts are the most effective mechanism for managing a whole river catchment in a holistic, sustainable manner.
