A Gift in your Will
This year’s Remember a Charity in your Will Week will take place from 8 – 14 September. The annual awareness week is designed to encourage more people to take a moment to consider leaving a gift to charity when writing a Will.
Leaving a gift in your Will is a fantastic way to ensure that future generations discover how the Industrial Revolution started in the amazing Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site. It won't cost you anything now but your contribution will support our charitable trust's twin aims of education and conservation.
Your help means our innovative range of educational programmes, live demonstrations and hands-on activities can continue to enrich all of our visitors' experiences. Last year, nearly 525,000 people visited our Museums with more than 70,000 of those being schoolchildren in organised parties.
As a charity, we rely solely on the generosity of all our supporters to carry out our work. Gifts left to the Trust in people's Wills are vital so that we can conserve, maintain and interpret the remarkable monuments to Britain's industrial history that survive in the scenic Ironbridge Gorge. Thanks to the donations from kind individuals, our ten internationally acclaimed and award-winning Museums will continue to tell the amazing story that began here in this beautiful part of Shropshire.
Every gift in every Will makes a difference no matter how large or small. Whether you decide to leave £50, £5,000 or more, it will all help us to achieve our mission.
The Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust is part of Remember A Charity - a consortium of over 140 charities set up to raise awareness of the importance of having a Will and leaving gifts to charities. You can also visit their website for further information about making a Will and leaving a legacy.
