Make a donation

We depend on the very generous support of our Members, supporters, sponsors and partner organisations. Your donation big or small will enable us to continue to offer life-changing expeditions to our Young Explorers.

All regular giving contributes to our Explorers Fund. Today we support young people leaving care, not in education, and those with physical disabilities who can now experience our programmes alongside a wide range of young people from across the education sector. We continue to support outdoor leaders of the future, too, through our newly upgraded Trainee Leader programme. 

Select a regular donation option below, or if you would like to make an even more generous annual or monthly donation to our work or discuss other ways you can help the society please contact our Head of Fundraising Jess Ritchie via

Become a British Exploring Society Patron

British Exploring Society patrons programme has been established to ensure we can transform more young lives. We very much hope you will consider joining this special group of British Exploring Society supporters and we look forward to welcoming you to our community.

Many of the young people who would most benefit from our work lack the significant financial resources necessary to participate. They have been excluded from opportunities throughout their childhood for similar reasons. Our patrons remove this barrier.

By joining a community of generous supporters, we can help more young people build their confidence, understand and develop their potential and secure themselves a more positive future.

By leaving a gift to British Exploring Society in your Will you can make a crucial difference to our work with young people from all parts of society. Our Fundraising team will be happy to discuss how your gift could help, and invite you to discover first-hand the positive impact legacies make to our work.
