Give the Gift of Music

Would you like your passion for music and the SCO to live on? Would you like to make a lasting contribution to the cultural life of Scotland? Then please take a moment to do something amazing by including a gift to the SCO in your Will. Every gift will help us to fulfil our mission to transform and enrich lives and communities through the power of inspirational music-making. 

It is a common myth that you have to be wealthy to leave a gift in your Will to help a charity, but nothing could be further from the truth. After taking care of family and friends, you will be amazed at what one final gift, no matter how big or small, can do. You can also make a gift to the SCO in memory of a loved one.

Legacy 3

What a gift in your Will can do for the SCO 

Alasdair Andrews, long-standing member of the SCO Chorus, left a generous gift in his will to the SCO and we were able to buy much needed folders for the Chorus. Other past legacies enabled us to produce award-winning recordings with the late Sir Charles Mackerras for example.

For more examples of how valuable legacies can be to the SCO see our latest news article on leaving a legacy to the SCO here. 


We would be delighted to hear from you if you are considering remembering the SCO in this meaningful way. It is also very easy to give a gift to the SCO in honour or memory of a family member or friend who you know enjoyed the SCO and our music, and we would be happy to talk about the best way to do this.

For a confidential conversation about gifts, please call Lucinda Coulthard or a member of the SCO Development Team on 0131 478 8364.
