Edinburgh World Heritage - Legacies



Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site is the result of deliberate and concerted efforts by its communities to restore its buildings and monuments, and ensure their stories are passed down to the next generation intact.  Because of their actions, Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Your legacy can protect theirs.

We will use your legacy in one of three ways – to support the running of the organisation; to support a specific project in conserving and promoting the World Heritage Site; or to help build up an endowment to ensure we can continue our work into the future.

Your legacy can help us to:

Look after Edinburgh's treasures - conserving historic buildings and monuments.
Keep the city's story alive
- through our schools and community programmes.
Regenerate Edinburgh's neglected corners
- improving the city's public spaces.

If you need any further information about our projects, or would like to discuss making a legacy, please contact the Director, Adam Wilkinson, on 0131 220 7720 or email adamwilkinson@ewht.org.uk in confidence.
