Anyone who loves Wordsworth's words, and the Lake District where they were written, should treasure the Wordsworth Trust and its inspiring work.

We can get your donation to our Catalyst Fund match-funded in full!  We have already received hundreds of donations, of all sizes and from all over the world.  However, we can only claim the Government's match funding until Friday 31 July.

This is a unique opportunity to make the Wordsworth Trust stronger, and even better able to uplift and inspire people of all ages and backgrounds.  We will never get this chance again.  Please help us to make the most of it.

You can donate online, by ’phone, by text or by post.  Find out how.
