Leave a legacy
We receive no core funding from government. Legacies represent a vital source of income for the Society. Legacy donations are exempt from inheritance tax as we are a registered charity.
Remember the Society in your will
Leave a lasting legacy and help build the Society’s endowment fund, which will safeguard our future work. Unrestricted legacy income can be used as part of the endowment fund to support development of our full range of education, expeditions, research, policy and public work, as well as maintaining our historic and contemporary collections. Alternatively leave a legacy for a specific purpose.
We are grateful for any legacy gift, large or small. Find out more about leaving a gift to the Society by downloading our Legacy leaflet.
