MyParkScotland provides a safe and easy way for everyone who loves Edinburgh, Falkirk and Glasgow’s greenspaces to support our treasured parks.

It is Scotland’s only crowdfunding site specifically for parks and greenspace projects. You can donate safely and easily to support parks and park projects. You can make donations through the website or by text from your mobile phone. We use PayPal to manage online donations to the Park Project and Park Endowment Funds and JustTextGiving for mobile donations.

For most donations we can reclaim Gift Aid on your behalf from HMRC to increase the value of your donation. Gift Aid is a Government scheme which allows charities to increase the value of donations made to them. If you are a UK tax payer, Gift Aid can top up your donation on MyParkScotland by 25% at no extra cost to you.

Gift Aid makes a huge difference to small charities and local organisations, but if they aren’t registered with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator and HMRC, they can’t claim Gift Aid (and many that could claim Gift Aid don’t because they find the process too complicated). At MyParkScotland, we take care of the claim process on eligible donations, so that the Friends and community groups can concentrate on the great work they do in our parks. Adding Gift Aid to your donation typically means that your online donation of, for example, £10 becomes a park investment of £11.53 (after paying platform and management fees).

We work hard to keep our fees as low as possible to make sure that as much of each donation as possible is invested in our parks. For donations without Gift Aid, at least 92% of your donation is invested in parks. MyParkScotland is a not-for-profit registered Scottish charity (No. SC045424) and any fees taken go towards covering essential operating costs.
