The College has launched a heritage fundraising appeal to ensure our collections are preserved for future generations. You can donate online via our Justgiving site or contact us at or 0131 247 3625.

The College’s collections chart the history of medicine and science. Careful custodianship over three centuries has ensured that the collection is generally in good condition but it is important that we can continue our work of preservation and digitisation. With the redevelopment of the College’s Conference Centre, a permanent high quality exhibition space for display of the College’s Heritage collection has been established.

Your donations will help us to:

• Develop online exhibitions in tandem with our Edinburgh displays
• Digitise and put online more unique archival manuscripts
• Develop innovative learning programmes

You can:

• Make a one-off payment of any amount
• Set up a direct debit
• Remember the College in your will

Those making substantial donations can become a:

Silver Sponsor

For those who donate between £1,000 and £4,999 you will have one of the shelves in the College’s historic library named after you and affixed, permanently, with a brass plaque in your honour.
