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.
In commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the terrorist bombing of Pan American Flight 103 over Lockerbie, we are proud to support the creation of a Garden of Contemplation at Threave Garden & Estate.
Set within the grounds of the Battle of Bannockburn historic site is the monument which commemorates the 650th anniversary of one of Scotland’s most pivotal moments in history. The monument requires cyclical maintenance to ensure its survival for future generations.
The program will build on detailed mapping and survey work recently undertaken by the Trust’s Archaeology Team, engaging the public through visible excavation of settlement sites and post-dig interpretation.
