Leave a legacy

Legacies are crucial to our fundraising, helping to shape the future of this historic company. Remembering ENO in your will is a wonderful way to extend support beyond your lifetime while ensuring that future generations experience the joy ENO has given you over the years.

Gifts can be directed to an area of our work that particularly interests or inspires you,for example:

  • singer training schemes
  • education and community projects
  • funding a new production
  • maintenance or improvement project at the London Coliseum

How you can benefit from leaving a legacy

There’s never been a better time than now to leave a charitable bequest to ENO. Once you have ensured that family and friends are provided for, we hope that you will consider a gift to ENO, and draw comfort from knowing that your contribution will help secure our future.

A gift in your will can also help reduce the inheritance tax paid on your estate. HMRC will reduce inheritance tax from 40% to 36% for those who pledge 10% or more of their taxable estate to charity in their wills.

How to leave a legacy to ENO

Including a legacy gift to ENO in your will is easy. Gifts can be a specified sum of money, a proportion of your residuary estate or specific items of your property.

If you have already made your will and would like to include ENO, you can simply add a codicil making the addition or change. A codicil is a separate legal document amending your will and can be made with the advice of your solicitor.

If you are yet to make a will, first consult a professional adviser (usually your solicitor or your bank).
