The award is pre­sented to an or­ga­ni­za­tion or in­di­vid­ual who strives to pre­serve, pro­tect and pro­mote Scot­tish cul­ture and her­itage in P.E.I..

As well as serv­ing as a his­tory teacher at Kens­ing­ton Re­gional High School for 31 years, Mac­don­ald has been in­volved with the Kens­ing­ton Her­itage So­ci­ety, the Scot­tish Set­tlers His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety, the Friends of St. An­drews Chapel, the pro­vin­cial Her­itage Places Ad­vi­sory Board, the Mu­seum and Her­itage Foun­da­tion of P.E.I., the board of St. Dun­stan’s Univer­sity, the St. Vin­cent de Paul So­ci­ety and Meals on Wheels. He has also served in many ca­pac­i­ties with the Cale­do­nian Club.
