Major Donors


We can't do it without you: we depend on personal donations to augment the income we receive from membership fees, investments and the commercial activity at our properties to ensure we can continue to protect Scotland's heritage.

Last year alone we spent in the region of £9 million on conservation projects, repairs and improvements, and continue to appeal for your support for the nation's treasures in our care.

Every year we receive thousands of donations, through our appeals, donor programmes, or legacies. We are sorry we only have space here to acknowledge individual gifts over £5,000. For the thousands of smaller donations we receive we are immensely grateful, and we thank everyone who has supported the Trust, including those who choose to remain anonymous.
