Leave a legacy
At a time of great uncertainty and change in global affairs, remembering the institute in your will or estate plans helps us achieve our mission to build a sustainably secure, prosperous and just world.
Chatham House is a non-profit institute without government subsidy or significant endowment and your gift will have a lasting impact on the institute, by helping us to provide for our future ability to continue undertaking world class research with depth and impartiality.
Leaving a gift in your will or estate plans
Writing a will gives you the opportunity to make special bequests to your loved ones and causes close to your heart. A charitable gift to Chatham House makes a valuable contribution to the future of the institute’s work and could also reduce or eliminate your inheritance tax liability.
Please consult a solicitor to find out which form of words is be most appropriate for you, and to ensure your will accurately reflects your intentions.
If you choose to leave a gift to Chatham House, we hope you let us know so that we may thank you for your generosity.
Types of legacy gift to consider
- Pecuniary bequest – a donation of a fixed sum of money.
- Residuary bequest – the most common type of estate gift is a gift of all or a percentage of your estate after all other debit, liabilities, payments and bequests have been made.
- Specific or non-monetary gifts – Chatham House accepts the income from, for example, publicly traded stocks and shares, a home artwork or collections. However, we are not usually able to accept the specific assets themselves.
- Other types of gift include reversionary gifts and adding a codicil to your will.
