Reform Scotland is an independent, non-party, Scottish charitable think tank and is funded by donations from individuals, charitable trusts and corporate organisations. This allows us to address issues free from political constraints or influence, and to communicate our ideas to people and groups representing all political perspectives in order to build a consensus for reform. However, to achieve our aims we need support from individuals and organisations that share our objectives.

We greatly value all contributions that make our work possible.
