Corporate support and partnerships

We are delighted to work with a wide range of like-minded businesses across our organisation.

All partnerships have the same aim – to help us protect Scotland’s heritage for generations to come. We welcome partners who wish to support the Trust, whether through transformational strategic partnerships, sponsorship opportunities, brand- and cause-related marketing partnerships, or our corporate membership scheme. There are many different ways of working with us.

A corporate partnership with the National Trust for Scotland is a wonderful way to demonstrate your commitment to safeguarding Scotland’s extraordinary natural, built and cultural heritage for generations to come, bringing your business and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) objectives to life. We pioneer best conservation practice, drive innovative projects, inform national policy and increase access and engagement with Scotland’s treasured places.

As our partner, you’ll reach a global audience of people who share our values, creating a positive brand image among new and existing customers as well as your employees. You’ll also contribute to the social, cultural and economic wellbeing of Scotland and the communities within.

Strategic partnerships

We seek innovative and bold partnerships that challenge the status quo and lead the way in terms of reach and impact across sectors. We work with companies that strongly align with our organisational values, and that can support us in delivering our strategic objectives. These partnerships centre around major strategic projects or initiatives, and are delivered collaboratively – benefitting from the Trust’s and the partner’s expertise in specific fields.


Your organisation can provide sponsorship in a variety of ways, from event and campaign partnerships to support for specific projects and teams across the National Trust for Scotland. Sponsorship opportunities offer your organisation access to our membership base, as well as the millions of visitors who come to our places each year. Sponsorship can also include bespoke messaging in our member magazine, at our events and through our media and online channels.

Brand and retail partnerships

We partner with organisations who raise funds for the Trust with public support of our work through cause-related marketing of their own products and services. We can provide you with brand assets so that you can help us raise the funds and awareness to protect Scotland’s cultural and natural heritage. We’ve also worked with companies on cause-related marketing products and bespoke offerings.

Why should your organisation support the National Trust for Scotland?

We can provide a bespoke partnership that motivates your employees and customers to join our cause to protect Scotland’s heritage for current and future generations. You will be assigned a dedicated account manager who will highlight the difference your support is making to our cause, and offer guidance and assistance for all your partnership activities.

We can also offer retail opportunities, corporate hospitality options, venue hire, employee benefits and opportunities for behind-the-scenes access.
