Leave a Legacy

Leaving a gift to The Anvil Trust helps us to bring the joy of music and of Great Performance – Live to the region. Your generosity will support our varied programme that entertains, uplifts and inspires our audiences, and our community work that uses music and the arts to benefit those who need it most.

The Anvil Trust is an independent registered charity and we rely on individuals like you to ensure that our work can continue.

Give in Memory

A gift in memory of a loved one is a wonderful and special way to remember them. It will enable us to continue to bring the world's greatest artists, performers and orchestras to Basingstoke.

You can celebrate the life of a loved one by setting up a special fund in their memory, or request that friends and family make a donation in lieu of giving flowers at a funeral or memorial service.

You can set up an online In Memoriam fundraising page quickly and easily using JustGiving.

Legacy Giving

Making or updating your will is simple and easy. If you would like to leave a gift to The Anvil Trust, or to the Great Music of the World Fund which supports the International Concert Series specifically, your solicitor will help you.

A legacy gift to The Anvil Trust can, in many cases, reduce the rate of Inheritance Tax paid by your estate.

If you decide to leave a legacy or have already included The Anvil Trust in your will, please contact us to let us know.

We gratefully acknowledge all those who have left legacies or given us pledges of future support.
