Leaving a Gift in Your Will

Inspire a love of art for generations to come...

Without the foresight and generosity of Ellen Sharples and Augusta Talboys, the RWA may never have acquired such a prestigious building or extensive permanent collection. Today, you could help with RWA with a gift in your will. Any size of gift will help bring the most talented visual artists into the daily lives of local people - you don’t need to be wealthy to leave a gift that will make a difference. Once you have provided for your loved ones, please consider making a gift to secure the future of the RWA.

You can find out more about leaving a legacy to the RWA in confidence, by phoning our Director, Alison Bevan on 0117 906 7603 or Head of Development, Kate Foster by email at kate.foster@rwa.org.uk

If you do decide to include a gift to the RWA in your will, or have done already, please let us know – this will give us the opportunity to thank you and show you how your gift will make a difference to us.

We strongly recommend that you consult a solicitor when making or updating your will, to ensure that it is legally valid and reflects your intentions. 

You will need to know our charity details, which are:

The Royal West of England Academy
Queens Road
Registered Charity No 1070163
