Legacy Giving

Future Generations of Music Lovers

Spitalfields Music has been bringing artists, audiences and communities together to change lives in East London for generations. Many of our audiences support our work by becoming Members and Patrons. Others see such value in our work that they help secure Spitalfields Music’s long term future by leaving us a gift in their will, making a transformational impact on the charity for years to come.

Every legacy we receive, of any size, directly supports our work, enables us to plan long-term and has a lasting impact on our artists, audiences and communities. Your legacy will:

  • Secure the future of our nationally renowned festivals
  • Inspire and bring together communities with our award-winning projects in schools, special educational needs schools, care homes and community centres
  • Develop future generations of exceptional artists through training and commissions

Thank you for helping me believe in myself.

We would be honoured if you would like to leave a legacy in your will to Spitalfields Music. If you plan to support us in this way, we would like to thank you by inviting you to become an Honourary Life Patron of Spitalfields Music, an invitation-only group of former artistic directors, board members, and fellow philanthropists.

As we are a registered charity, your legacy gift will be exempt from Inheritance Tax. If you’d like advice on how to make or change your will, or to discuss your gift going towards a specific project, we’d be delighted to talk to you: call Lydia on 020 7377 0287 or email lydia@spitalfieldsmusic.org.uk

Among others, we are indebted to the late Christopher Vaughan, whose legacy has funded a great number of music education projects and performances given by young musicians. What a precious gift to local children and audiences which will live on, long after Mr Vaughan’s donation. We are truly grateful.
