Fettes Foundation

The Fettes Foundation was formed in 1998 to raise philanthropic income for the benefit of Fettes and its pupils.

Since then, the Foundation has received donations from over 2,400 generous donors to support the provision of bursaries, a number of capital developments and other key projects.

Donations from our engaged community of Old Fettesians, parents and friends of Fettes transform the lives of pupils who come to Fettes and will continue to do so for generations.

Thank you to everyone who has helped the Foundation to achieve its aims for more than two decades.
