Support your Society

Please consider donating to support the work of the RSCDS.  By doing so you will help us to bring the benefits of Scottish country dancing and music to as wide an audience as possible, while also celebrating Scottish culture, tradition, and identity.  Your valuable donation will go towards developing Scottish country dancing and music for current and future generations in Scotland and around the world.

Following on from the impact of Covid-19 and living our lives through the isolation of lockdowns, we can better appreciate the power that dance has to bring us together and enrich our lives through learning, having fun and socialising with friends. The benefits of dancing extend beyond the physical, helping to maintain good mental health alongside the social value of involvement in a community of dancers. Dance in general has been proven to increase both physical and mental health and wellbeing across all age groups

A very special way that you can support our work is by joining the Friends of RSCDS, making a regular monthly or annual gift to support our work.

Gift Aid is a form of income tax relief designed to benefit charities like the RSCDS.
