Remember us in your Will

Why are Gifts in Wills important?

Gifts in Wills are vital to our work empowering young people. They give us the funds we need to reach the children who need us most. Leaving a gift in your Will to Shakespeare Schools Foundation will transform children’s lives.

Why choose to give SSF a gift in your Will?

Shakespeare Schools Foundation is an award-winning, ambitious charity helping tens of thousands of young people every year. We give children the confidence they need to succeed in life. They develop aspiration for their futures and learn the value of hard work and creativity. 99% of students were more confident after taking part in our annual Festival. Together, we can ensure the next generation are given the best chance to succeed in life.

After you have provided for those closest to you, consider a gift to SSF in your will. All gifts (even 1%) will make a difference.

How would the gift in my Will help children?

Young people are leaving school lacking essential skills to succeed in life. Society calls for a generation who are resilient, adaptable, creative, excellent communicators and top collaborators. Yet children are leaving school lacking these "soft" skills. Every year we help tens of thousands of young people gain these life skills, enabling them to succeed in life. Our work raises aspirations, broadens horizons and sends confidence soaring. Students develop pride in themselves and become ambitious for their future.

How do I leave a gift to SSF in my Will?

It’s easy! When making or updating your Will, you just need to let your solicitor know that you'd like to leave a Gift to Shakespeare Schools Foundation. There is no obligation to let us know (but you can, if you wish) and you can change your mind at any time.

If you'd like talk to someone in our team about different ways to give in your Will and how your legacy will have a lasting impact on children, please contact Hannah on 020 7601 1812 or hannah@shakespeareschools.org

The next generation of young people are waiting to have their moment of transformation. Next time you make changes to your Will, remember SSF and remember that you can help us to make a lasting impact on young lives.
