The story of Scotland is told through its places, from the remote island of St Kilda to Edinburgh’s elegant Charlotte Square. These places connect us to the past and provide inspiration for our future. And your support to protect them is now more important than ever.
At NTSUSA, we are privileged to help the National Trust for Scotland care for many of Scotland’s most incredible places – the majestic landscapes, glorious gardens, and architectural treasures that tell the stories of the natural forces and people who shaped the land and the wildlife that calls it home today.
But right now, many of the places we love are at risk – from the elements, from development, and from an unprecedented decline in visitation brought about by the global coronavirus pandemic.
The Trust relies on income from members and visitors to protect its properties. With these properties closed to the public indefinitely, the Trust needs our support to ensure it can continue protecting the rich history and tradition shared by Scots and Americans for future generations.
For the Love of Scotland
Americans can play a critical role to ensure the future of Scotland’s past during this uncertain time. The best way to protect Scotland’s places is by making a tax-deductible donation to NTSUSA. Your donation can be restricted to your favorite property or directed to wherever the Trust needs it most.
Glencoe Annual Appeal
Earlier this year, we vividly reinterpreted the story of Glencoe in a world-class visitor center. Now, we are supporting projects that extend learning outdoors for an immersive look into the glen’s fascinating history. While work has been temporarily suspended, the project has reached important milestones toward completion and will resume as soon as it is safe to do so.

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 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.
