We’re very excited to be taking part in The Big Give’s #2for1nature #GreenMatchFund 2024 campaign to raise more funds to support community-led nature-based solutions throughout the Scottish highlands and islands.

For one week only, from 18th to 25th April 2024, every £1 donated to HIEF via the Big Give website will be matched – meaning you can DOUBLE your impact for nature at no extra cost to you.*

There are so many incredible local heroes working hard to protect and restore nature in the highlands and islands including:


A donation to HIEF allows you to pool funds with like-minded donors to leverage your impact and make a positive difference to nature on your doorstep.

All the funds raised by the GREEN MATCH FUND campaign will be added to our grant budget, enabling HIEF to support even more inspiring, community-led nature-based solutions in the highlands and islands.  Thus supporting local project champions to maximise returns for nature whilst also helping to mitigate the impact of the current climate and biodiversity crises.

Projects like the innovative ‘Cutting Down’ project tackling net cuttings – a pervasive source of marine plastic pollution, especially on island beaches.

Every donation will help us to support more grassroots nature-based solutions, in turn helping them to replicate and scale their impact. You can see all the projects we have funded to date here.

Are you able to help us today? DONATE HERE

Find out more about our ‘Green Match Fund’ campaign here, and make ONE donation with TWICE the impact between midday 18th April and midday 25th April 2024.

We are very grateful for your support!

* Our target is to raise £10,000 through online donations during the week to release our full match fund pot of £10,000 – generating a total of £20,000.
