How to leave a gift in your will

We know that making a will is a very personal decision and you will want to take care of your family and friends first. But if you would like to leave a gift to the RSA this can be as little as 1 percent of your estate and will make an important contribution to our continuing work which aims to ensure more people can fulfil their own potential.

If you would like to make or amend a will, we recommend you see a solicitor.

How to leave a gift in your will

Amending your will

You can change your will to include a donation to the RSA.

If you have already made a will and would like to make a gift to the RSA in your will you can do this by completing the codicil below and signing it before two adult witnesses (not beneficiaries of the will) who also then sign the codicil. The codicil should then be kept with your will (not attached with pins or staples) in a safe place or with a trusted friend or solicitor. As a registered charity, making a gift in your will is tax efficient as this gift is exempt from inheritance tax.

Thank you for your support – you will help ensure our work continues to make an impact for another 260 years and future generations benefit from our pioneering work.


Empowering the next generation

Empowering the next generation

We stimulate social innovation by promoting the best ideas. We support Fellows and others to turn their ideas into practical action and have a long track record of work in the field of education.
For example, in 2008, we set up the RSA Academy in Tipton, a deprived area in West Midlands. Tipton is now part of a dynamic group of five schools all based in the same region; the growing Family of RSA Academies. RSA Academies is now an independent charity with whom we have a long term partnership, to help raise standards as part of a broad curriculum that develops skills as well as knowledge.
