Make a Gift in your Will


Be part of Shakespeare’s legacy by making a gift in your Will to the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.


When you make a gift in your Will to the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust you can help conserve the five Houses and Gardens in Stratford-upon-Avon which are associated with William Shakespeare and his family, keeping them open for generations to come. You can help us engage with people from around the world through our international education and outreach work, inspiring more people through Shakespeare's genius. You can help us care for and expand our world class collections, enabling more people to access them. Your gift will help sustain Shakespeare's legacy for generations to come.

We are very grateful for bequests of any size and are happy to answer any questions you might have . Please contact the Development Team if there is anything at all you would like to ask us about leaving us a gift in your Will.
