Reform Scotland is an independent, non-party Scottish charitable think tank, which means we can address issues free of political constraints. This enables us to communicate our ideas to people representing all political perspectives in order to build a consensus for reform. However, to achieve our aims we need support from people and organisations that share our objectives.

We are very grateful for the support we receive from individuals, charitable trusts and corporate organisations.  Currently, our corporate partners contribute 10 per cent of our total annual revenue with the rest coming from individual donations, ranging from £10 to £25,000.


We greatly value personal contributions to support our work. There are three levels at which you can give us your support.

Supporters donate a minimum of £35 a year to Reform Scotland. As a Supporter, you will receive all of our publications as well as invitations to many of our events.

As a special introductory offer, we will send all new supporters a hard copy of our publication  Scotland’s Economic Future, edited by the noted economist Professor Sir Donald MacKay, while stocks last.

Sponsors donate a minimum of £1,000 a year to Reform Scotland. As a Sponsor, you will receive all of our publications and invitations to all of the events that we organise to enhance our policy and research programme. In addition, you will have the opportunity to become more closely involved in the work of Reform Scotland.

Donations we will also gratefully receive any amount less than £35 (though if making the donation online it needs to be at least £5) which will help Reform Scotland carry on its work

If you would like to become a Supporter or a Sponsor of Reform Scotland please complete the form on the online donations page. Reform Scotland is a charity registered in Scotland (number SC039624).
