For over 60 years the Earl of Wemyss and March was synonymous with the National Trust for Scotland. Through his leadership and inspiration, as Chairman from 1948, then President and President Emeritus, the Trust took its place at the forefront of the challenge to secure some of the most essential elements of the cultural and natural heritage of Scotland.
To honour the vision and contribution of Lord Wemyss, who died in 2008, the Trust launched the Wemyss Circle in May 2010.
This new giving group allows our supporters to get closer to the conservation work we do and see their gift in action, helping to safeguard Scotland's natural and cultural heritage.
It is often forgotten that The National Trust for Scotland is a charity and that we rely on the generosity of our supporters to be able to continue our vital work. We need to keep on raising funds so that we can ensure that our countryside, our wildlife, our much-loved historic buildings and our hills, glens and coastline can still be enjoyed by our children and our grandchildren.
We can't do it alone: we depend on personal donations to augment the income we receive from membership fees, investments and the commercial activity at the properties in our care.
By supporting the National Trust for Scotland with an annual gift of £1,000 or above, you will be giving substantial and direct support to the protection and promotion of Scotland's natural and cultural heritage, allowing future generations to enjoy the best that this nation has to offer.
In recognition of this significant support you will have privileged access and insight into areas of our work rarely accessed by the general public. This includes:
- Exclusive events at National Trust for Scotland properties with our experts in built heritage, collections, gardens and the countryside
- An annual invitation to the President's Drinks Reception, where you will meet some of the staff and volunteers who work on key projects funded by people like you
- Opportunities to join staff and volunteers behind the scenes at the Trust
- A bespoke newsletter for significant supporters of the National Trust for Scotland, giving updates on projects supported by your gifts
