The National Trust for Scotland Foundation USA encourages Americans to participate in the care of the cultural and natural treasures protected by the National Trust for Scotland. By providing grants that assist in funding urgent conservation activities, the National Trust for Scotland Foundation ensures that the heritage shared by Scots and Americans is safeguarded for current and future generations.

Two million visitors every year are welcomed to Trust properties, and experience the best of Scotland’s past, present and future. An estimated two million more people visit the islands, beaches, mountains, and nature preserves protected by the Trust.

The number of Americans who have Scottish ancestry is estimated to be 20 to 25 million, and Scotland has had an extraordinary influence on the culture and history of the United States. Whether you have Scottish roots or like many Americans, just love Scotland, there are many opportunities for you to participate in the care of its natural and historic places. Find out more »
