Your Support Matters

Priority Projects

For Americans who love Scotland, The National Trust for Scotland Foundation USA is the best way to actively support the preservation of the country’s rich cultural and natural treasures and to ensure their existence for future generations.

As Scotland’s largest conservation charity and third-largest landowner, the National Trust for Scotland cares for properties of national and international significance, ranging from islands and mountain ranges to battlefields, castles, and even a tenement house. It costs the Trust $75 each minute simply to maintain the significant natural and built resources under its care. The Trust’s commitment to preventative conservation means that timely interventions are executed before severe—and much costlier—problems arise.

The National Trust for Scotland Foundation USA partners with the Trust in this responsible approach by annually promoting a range of projects in Scotland for the consideration of donors from across the United States. The Trustees of the Foundation are honored to give you the opportunity to join with them by making a tax-effective investment in one of the following urgent initiatives.

Your support will make a critical difference.
