Supporting National Charities
Scottish Building Society also supports a number of charities which operate across Scotland.
The National Trust for Scotland is an independent charity set up in 1931 for the preservation and conservation of natural and human heritage that is significant to Scotland and the world.
The Trust has gone on to become Scotland's largest membership organisation and a leader in conserving and promoting the nation's treasured places and collections so that they can be enjoyed by present and future generations.
The Scottish Community Drama Association (SCDA) was formed in 1926 to further amateur and community drama throughout Scotland with particular emphasis on rural communities where no theatre existed.
The Association links together drama societies, clubs and individuals, offering them advice, encouragement and practical support to further amateur and community drama.
Scottish Building Society sponsors the SCDA One Act Play Festival, a national event which attracts entries from as many as 300 community drama goups across Scotland.
