We want to conserve, restore and reinvigorate Panmure House as a home for economic and social debate and the latest academic thinking.
But more than this. We want Panmure House to be a vital resource for the people of Edinburgh and beyond; for the community, for business and students. To achieve this, we need your support.
The total costs for the project are around £4 million. This will be raised from various sources - but mostly from people like you.
This A-listed building will be re-energised. Careful renovations and sensitive contemporary adaptations will play host to debates, lectures, exhibitions, meetings, concerts and educational programmes.
