Annual Contribution Levels

We ask our partners to contribute an annual amount based on their average turnover:

  • £250 per year for businesses with an average annual turnover of less than £100,000
  • £500 per year for businesses with an average annual turnover of between £100,000 and £500,000
  • £1,000 per year for businesses with an average annual turnover in excess of £500,000

Fundraising Ideas

  • This contribution can be raised in a number of different ways, including:
    Customer Giving – Many of our partners ask their customers to contribute a small amount in order to fund their Business Partner Scheme membership. This can be through a voluntary charge added to customers’ bookings, or via a set amount added to a particular item – e.g. £0.05 on a ‘Jurassic Cappuccino’
  • Fundraising events – The Trust run several fundraising events with Business Partners, in collaboration with our dedicated group of Ambassadors and volunteers. Examples include guided walks, BBQs, fossil workshops and Jurassic Coast information evenings.
  • Direct donations – many of our partners are happy to make a direct financial contribution every year.

We want all our partners to raise their contribution in a sustainable way that adds real value to their offering to customers. We’d love to have a chat about the best way to help your business join our scheme.
