Supporting our Work

''

For more than 200 years the 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 have often allowed us to plan for the future with greater security and flexibility. In 2013, we launched the New Enlightenment Fund and you can read more about the fund and how you can support it here.
