Carnegie Trust Centenary

One hundred years ago, Andrew Carnegie founded the Carnegie UK Trust, based here in Dunfermline, to improve the well-being of people throughout Britain and Ireland.

The Trust will mark its centenary with a variety of events and projects including a book and short film charting its ground-breaking work over the years, a centenary website documenting this work and publicising upcoming commemorative events, and an online searchable archive.

The Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy will take place later this year in the Scottish Parliament, in recognition of the centenary. I recently raised a Parliamentary motion commending the Trust, which has garnered support from MSPs across Scotland, and wish the Trust continued success on improving people’s lives and circumstances over the next one-hundred years.
