About American Friends

The American Friends of Scotland’s Canals & Waterways (AFSC&W) is a designated key partner charity of the American Scottish Foundation.

The American Scottish Foundation are excited to engage with and promote our valuable work supporting the protection and conservation of Scotland’s beautiful, unique waterways through the activities of Scottish Waterways Trust.

This great partnership opens up opportunities for people and organisations in America to connect with a vital part of Scotland’s history and heritage by joining AFSC&W as an American Friend, or supporting our pioneering projects across Scotland with directed giving opportunities.

Through the American Scottish Foundation partnership, we are delighted to be able to share our innovative waterways programmes with people in the US and know that together we can really make a difference.
