The Scotland-Russia Forum is an independent organisation run by volunteers. We are a Scottish Incorporated Charitable Organisation (SCIO, reg. no. SC038728). Our aims and activities are described in About us.
In 2008 we received generous donations from Scottish & Newcastle plc and Awards for All, enabling us to rent and equip a Russian culture centre, the Scotland-Russia Institute, for its first three years. Apart from that most of our funding comes from membership subscriptions. Sadly we had to close the Scotland-Russia Institute in 2013 and now have a small office/library in the Edinburgh arts complex Summerhall.
To develop our activities and pay for our premises we need financial and other support.
There are many ways you could contribute: as a member, by volunteering your time and expertise or by donation. More details below but please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss: email firstname.lastname@example.org or tel. 0131 560 1486.
How you can help
become a member of the SRF
Regular support from our members is vital to our core services and activities. We particularly welcome payment by Standing Order as that helps us plan in advance. Members’ benefits include reduced rates for events, invitations to social events and meetings with distinguished visitors from Russia and her neighbours.
make a donation
We welcome individual donations of any size and would also be delighted to discuss corporate support. You might also like to consider helping to guarantee the long term future of the SRF by remembering us in your will. See "How to pay" below.
The Scotland-Russia Forum is entirely dependent on its members for all its activities and services. The more help we get - the more we can do.
We are particularly keen to find people to organise members' events (talks, socials etc).
Remember though - the SRF is an entirely voluntary charitable organisation. We can't pay you, but will cover agreed out of pocket expenses.
