Scots Word Sponsorship

Sponsorship of a specially chosen Scots word is a unique, personal way to say Happy Valentine’s day, Thank You, Happy Birthday, Congratulations, or simply Thinking of You. In return for a donation (we suggest £20), we will send you a personalised Certificate of Sponsorship plus information from the Dictionary of the Scots Language about the word’s usage from the earliest records of Scots to the present day.

Simply email the following information to


Please note that we can only send certificates to UK addresses.


You can make payment by any of the methods mentioned here. Money raised through word sponsorship helps us continue to document the vocabulary of Scots from its earliest records to the present day.


** Please allow us to reclaim an extra 25% on top of your donation by adding the following Gift Aid declaration to your email:

I wish to Gift Aid this donation (and any future donations) to Scottish Language Dictionaries. I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on my donation it will be my responsibility to pay any difference.
