Although it is sustained mainly by voluntary labour, The Dewar Project depends on sponsorship to raise the funding necessary to push forward its work, especially its publication programme. Between research expenses and publication, each volume costs in the region of £10,000 to produce. We cannot commit to publishing a volume until this degree of funding is secured to underpin it.


We are indebted to the following bodies for funding our Islay, Jura and Colonsay project:

The Clan Campbell Education Foundation (USA)
The Strathmartine Trust
The Gaelic Books Council
The Royal Celtic Society
Foundation Scotland
The Catherine McCaig Trust
For part-funding our upcoming Perthshire and Loch Lomond project, we are indebted to:

Our current aim, naturally, is to obtain full funding for our Perthshire and Loch Lomond project, so that John Dewar’s Perthshire and Loch Lomond can appear on schedule in 2026.
Donations towards any of our upcoming projects, no matter whether large or small, will be warmly welcomed. Simply contact info@dewarproject.com. Unless a donor wishes to remain anonymous, sponsorship will be fully acknowledged in the relevant volume, i.e. on the imprint page and in the introduction.
