The build-up to the RNLI’s 200th anniversary is your opportunity to help inspire a new era of lifesaving through membership of a unique club – a select group of people whose donations will help secure the future of lifesaving for the next 200 years.

By becoming a member, you will secure your place in RNLI history too.

2024 will be a catalyst for realising the RNLI’s vision of saving every one who needs our help. By joining the 200 Club, you will be at the heart of that effort. Your £10,000 membership donation will have a lifesaving impact for generations to come.

Why join the club?

As a member of the 200 Club, you will help inspire the next generation of RNLI supporters and volunteers. By helping to fund our 200th anniversary activities, your membership will help us to reach wider and more diverse audiences.

As a member, your name - or that of a loved one - will be recognised on a donor recognition board. You’ll be the proud owner of a bespoke RNLI 200 Club pin badge and certificate. You’ll receive an invite to our 2024 launch event and you’ll be among the first to receive news of forthcoming 200th anniversary activities.

RNLI 200 Club membership is open to individuals, groups and businesses. You can join by giving £10,000 or its euro equivalent at the current rate of exchange. Your gift to the RNLI can be in a single donation or instalments - the choice is yours.

In return for your generosity, you will be at the heart of our activities to mark 200 years of RNLI lifesaving.

We would be delighted to speak with you - or someone you know - about joining the RNLI 200 Club and the difference you could make.
