Upcoming Events

Please contact the Foundation office for information and tickets for all Crichton Foundation events.

The Foundation hosts two major fundraising events each year; the Women of Dumfries and Galloway Lunch in March and a St Andrew’s Dinner in November. We also hold the annual Elizabeth Crichton Founder’s Day Lunch and Henry Duncan Lecture, which celebrates the legacy of Elizabeth Crichton and her vision to establish a university campus in south west Scotland and the founding of a savings bank by Reverend Henry Duncan.
