Americans Working on Behalf of Scotland

Make a Gift

As a non-profit organization that receives no direct funding from the British or Scottish governments, the National Trust for Scotland relies on the critical support of American donors to fulfill its mission. Since our inception, we have granted more than $8.5 million to support the work of the Trust. Generous Americans like you have played a significant role in stewarding the Trust’s irreplaceable natural and historic treasures. Join us with the knowledge that you are helping to preserve the best of Scotland for generations to come.

We are grateful that you are considering making a contribution to the Foundation. Donations can be made online through our secure website, by calling our office at 617-227-7500, or by mail to:

The National Trust for Scotland Foundation USA
45 School Street, 3rd Floor
Boston, MA 02108

The Foundation accepts gifts of stock; please contact us directly for instructions.


General donations will be applied where funding is needed most. Gifts to the Foundation – in any amount – are vital to achieving our mission to make grants for education, preservation, and conservation programs that enrich the vast holdings of the National Trust for Scotland.


Priority Projects

The Foundation prioritizes urgent initiatives each year, ranging from major capital repairs to family engagement efforts to land and wildlife conservation. The Trust relies on the critical support of American donors to bring these projects to fruition.



Our spring appeal will fund a market garden on the land surrounding the cottage where poet Robert Burns was born. Encouraging conservation action at a local level, the garden will benefit the local Ayrshire community and improve the visitor experience to the Burns Museum.



Matching Gift

Many employers offer matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. Ask your employer today if they can help your gift make twice the impact!

Planned Giving

Planned gifts are designed to advance the mutual goals of donors and the Foundation. Planned gifts can be used to endow specific projects or properties. Above all, they are a permanent legacy of those who have championed and worked for preserving Scotland’s rich history.
