Supporting the Work of the Royal Society of Edinburgh

web fund logo  For more than two hundred years the Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) has played a major role in Scotland’s development as an enlightened, innovative and competitive nation.

Throughout our history individuals have made monetary contributions to aid the work of the RSE and their generosity and commitment has so often allowed us to plan for the future with greater security and flexibility.
