We understand that leaving a legacy is a personal matter and you may wish to remain anonymous, but please feel encouraged to contact us so that we can express our appreciation, thank you for your support and give you the opportunity to keep you informed of Music for All’s work. 

Every contribution is greatly appreciated and we welcome you to email or call us to arrange to talk to a member of our team to discuss your intention to leave a gift. We can help you to find the right support to enable your wishes. However, you choose to give, we will be extremely grateful to receive your donation.

If you’re thinking about writing your will, or planning to amend an existing will, you can decide what type of gift you would like to leave. These might include:

A residuary gift – gifting a share or percentage of your estate once loved ones have been provided for.

A cash gift – gifting a fixed set of money.

There are four simple steps to help you set up your gift:

Draw up your will

The Law Society provides guidance on finding a legal firm. Alternatively, the Institute of Professional Will Writers can support you in finding a professional will writer.

Consider your assets

You will need to draw up a list of your assets and debts (these include property, cash, savings, shares, pension funds, loans, debts including credit cards and a mortgage etc).

Decide who you’d like to remember in your will

This list should include names of individuals and organisations, and sums in each case.

Include any legacy donations

You may want to consider an award in your name, or like your gift to support a particular need, we’d welcome the opportunity to work with you and create a specific award in your name, please contact help@musicforall.org.uk to discuss your legacy options with us.

Hear from a Music for All legacy donor:

"Music has always been a key part of our family life and that has encompassed many genres and forms. All through our childhood it played a massive part and when Mummy died and Daddy remarried with Theresa. Music continues to be a beautiful way of remembering their lives. It is a comforting thought that Theresa’s love of music, and her desire to help musicians achieve their ambitions has resulted in such tangible benefits in line with her wishes. I hope that it encourages others to support the work of the charity in this way so that many more people are given the opportunity to discover and enjoy music in their lives."
