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 on 0117 973 0938, or 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
