By writing or updating your will, you can share your love of books and reading with the next generation.
A gift in your Will could give a child their first book and inspire a life-long love of reading – it could even support the Scotland's future storytellers. We know that for many children, the only books in their home are the ones given by Scottish Book Trust.
If you are thinking of leaving a gift in your Will to Scottish Book Trust, thank you!
If my donation becomes a book, and that book goes into a child's hands and instils in them a love of reading – that becomes a love of creativity, or even an idea for a book of their own – one day, that child might even become an author. The thought makes my heart sing with joy. That's why I'm leaving a gift in my will for Scottish Book Trust
If you would like your gift or in memory donation to support a particular area of our work, we can provide you with all the information you need to ensure your gift is used in the way that you would like it to be.
We're here to help whether you'd like to support giving books to the families most in need, nurturing Scotland's writers, helping people living with dementia and their loved ones to share books throughout their lives, or widening access to books, reading and writing across Scotland -- wherever the need is greatest.
