The RIAS fulfils its Charter objectives by a full and varied programme of work both in the fostering of the national architecture of Scotland and in the support of its members.

Income from donations and legacies is vital towards supplementing membership subscription income to assist the RIAS with specific charitable activities such as supporting student architects, community projects, publishing, exhibitions, awards and prizes.

It is easier to make donations or bequests to charitable organisations like the RIAS now that such gifts are exempt from Capital Transfer Tax (whether the donation is made during the lifetime of the donor or on his or her death). While a number of significant gifts have been received from RIAS members, those outwith the profession who wish to support the work of the Incorporation are also encouraged to consider the benefits of legacy giving.
