Sylva works across Britain; caring for forests to ensure they thrive for people and for nature, and supporting innovation in home-grown wood.
Innovation is at the heart of much of our work, particularly in information technology, and this together with very wide partnership working and effective communications, means that we achieve a wide impact. We underpin our work with sound science — much of which we commission or support ourselves — that we then apply in powerful, practical ways in Britain’s forests.
Sylva was founded in 2009. Some highlights of our first five years have included: … following the full life story of the OneOak tree, developing an ecosystem services trading platform across four EU countries, engaging 2,600 people in our national survey, holding trails and exhibitions across Britain, supporting two Oxford-Sylva scholars, sponsoring an award-winning book, nurturing sustainable forest management across 35,000 hectares with 2,500 woodland owners, launching Good Woods with help from B&Q, developing a centre for innovation in wood …
The Sylva Foundation is a charity registered in England and Wales (No.1128516) and in Scotland (No.SC041892). We are working to revive Britain’s wood culture, following sustainable development principles.

Is there any cost to our cause or supporters?
No, it's completely free for your cause and supporters. The only cost is to the retailer.
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Can any cause use GoRaise to fundraise?
Yes – any good cause (an organisation with unselfish goals) can use GoRaise to generate funds, from small community groups to national charities. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
How do we get paid?
You can choose to receive your money into a bank account or direct donation platform. We pay our causes every quarter and challengers monthly. We'll let you know once the payment has been sent. Please note: causes have to have at least £15 (and Challengers £2) in their account before we make payment
