Every gift, no matter the size, secures transformative experiences of Shakespeare for future generations.

The RSC is a theatre and learning charity and we work with thousands of young people and adults across the UK every year to unlock potential by developing life, language and theatre skills, building self-confidence and enhancing life chances. You can ensure the future of this life changing work is preserved by leaving a gift in your will.

How you can make a difference

Once you have provided for your loved ones, please consider leaving a gift in your will to the RSC. We ask you to reflect on your first experience of Shakespeare and the RSC and consider how these experiences have inspired you and impacted your life. Every gift you make, no matter how big or small, is felt by thousands of young people and adults around the country.

The support of our audiences is vital to secure the future of our work onstage, in the rehearsal rooms and in classrooms around the country with 10% of our philanthropic donations coming from gifts left to us in wills. These gifts are vital to create transformative experiences of Shakespeare. 

Your gift could support:

  • Transformative productions of Shakespeare's work in Stratford-upon-Avon, London and around the world. 
  • Our education work across the nation both in person in workshops and online resources in the Shakespeare Learning Zone. 
  • Groundbreaking digital development work leading on from Dream in 2021.

How to leave a gift in your will

Did you know you can phone your solicitor with our charity name and registered charity number and ask to leave 1% of your estate to us or a fixed amount? It can be done in less than a minute.
