A simple guide to planned giving

Many people leave a gift in their will to their favourite charities, often supporting an important cause after family and loved ones have been taken care of.

If you decide to support Sound and Music in this way, we would be delighted. Legacies of any size and proportion really can make a huge difference to the important work we do with composers of all ages. Your planned gift will enable us to continue supporting and developing new music in the UK long into the future, and have a transformational impact on our work.

You might want to find out more about our work or talk to us first before you make this commitment. You can read some of the stories of the amazing individuals we’ve worked with on our Impact page or you are more than welcome to contact us at fundraising@soundandmusic.org. We can arrange a confidential chat over email or a phone call as you prefer.

If you have left a gift to Sound and Music in your will, thank you very much! It would be really helpful if you could let us know so we can discuss ways of showing our appreciation, so please do email us to fill us in on the details.
