Leave a Legacy

Investing in the Future

A legacy is your way to protect the causes that matter to you most for years to come.

As a science centre and a public engagement charity, we rely on voluntary donations to continue our work to educate people about the environmental challenges facing our planet.

By choosing to leave a gift to Dynamic Earth in your will, you will help us to deliver deep and consistent science learning at all levels, and to inspire the next generation to engage with science and sustainability. Even a small gift can be vital to secure the future of our iconic Edinburgh institution.

How your gift could help:


A gift of this range can help us to develop new learning materials for schools workshops, and for our public and community engagement programmes. For example, it could help us to build a new erupting volcano model or invest in new IT equipment to teach coding skills. It could also help us to develop new Accessibility Toolkits to help those with additional needs to make the most of their visit to Dynamic Earth. 


A gift at this level can help us to deliver educational outreach and community activities, funding Science Engagement and Community Learning roles and learning materials. We visit remote communities across Scotland to connect with those who wouldn’t normally have access to quality science learning. We also engage with community groups (for example, from areas of multiple deprivation) that can have barriers to learning.


A gift of £10,000 or more can help fund our major development projects, for example, brand new immersive interactive galleries within our permanent exhibition with associated outreach programmes that will engage people of all ages and backgrounds for years to come.
