Leaving a gift in your will

Visitors in the garden at Kedleston Hall, Derbyshire

From restoring world-famous art and protecting wildlife habitats, to repairing coastal pathways, gifts in wills are used right at the heart of our work. Please consider leaving a gift in your will and help to look after the places you love.

Why leave money to charity in your will?

Without gifts in wills the National Trust wouldn’t be able to protect and look after all the places in our care. Any gift, no matter how large or small, makes a lasting difference, and if you like, you can choose to leave your gift to the place that matters most to you.

Your gift could support rangers, conservation experts and volunteers to replant hedgerows and wildflower meadows, repair coastal paths, protect historic homes, and so much more.
