To help minimise subscription rises and to keep on delivering in key areas, donations are a great help.
Many of our members want to give that little bit extra; £1, £5, £10 or sometimes even more to help fund specific projects that are close to their heart. Every donation will be spent on the project you support, all you need to do is to pick one or more.
Our work at BASC is funded mainly through your membership subscriptions but it is greatly enhanced by generous donations from members and others who are passionate about their shooting.
Gifts have enabled BASC activity to be enhanced by focusing on specific areas, to achieve more than we could otherwise have done.
With your help and support BASC can enhance our delivery of core objectives, as well as providing much more to secure the future of shooting and our countryside.
Whether you choose to give a one-off amount or a regular monthly gift, every penny donated will be wisely invested in the future of shooting and our countryside.
BASC is giving a significant boost to its work with young people. The reason is simple and goes to the heart of what BASC stands for; the promotion and protection of the sport we all love.
The survival of shooting depends crucially on numbers and with more than a million people involved in shooting, the overwhelming majority are over 40.
Increasingly children are brought up with little direct contact with the natural world, no knowledge of shooting and a scant understanding of the countryside. BASC’s task is to raise awareness of the benefits of shooting among the wider public and particularly among young people.
BASC already do an enormous amount of work to encourage and coach young people into shooting through its Young Shot programme. As well as taking our message to school children who have little or no opportunity to understand countryside ways, we have just created a new head of pathways to shooting role that will focus on achieving this.
You can support this programme by offering sporting opportunities to Young Shots at your syndicate, wildfowling club or clay pigeon shoot.
Our appeal aims to:
Our current work with young people costs more than £250,000 each year but resources are limited.
You make a donation and help us to ensure that shooting sports is promoted and protected.
