Donations and Sponsorship
We are a charitable organisation whose mission is to sustain the Home of The Black Watch for current and future generations. The running costs of the Castle and Museum are over £800,000 per year of which only 3.5% is funded by statutory grants. Therefore your generous support is vital to conserve and protect the unique collection and the historic Balhousie Castle.
Our Charitable Aims Are
- The advancement of education of the general public about the history and activities of The Black Watch and of the British armed services in general
- The advancement of the arts, heritage and culture
- The promotion by all charitable means of the qualities of courage, discipline, endurance, integrity, loyalty, respect for others, selfless commitment and a team spirit to improve the condition of young people in particular and society in general
