How Legacies Help

How Legacies Help

Gifts in Wills allow the National Theatre to plan, with confidence, ground-breaking initiatives and programmes that enable us to fulfil our mission to share our work with the widest possible audience. These programmes seek out and inspire the next generation of theatre makers and lovers, help us take our productions out of our Southbank home to become a truly National Theatre and ensure that our work is conserved for posterity.

Every aspect of the work of the National Theatre is supported by the generosity of legacy donors.

The National Theatre strives for best practice in fundraising and is registered with the Fundraising Regulator.
We are transparent with our donors and supporters, ensuring that our fundraising is legal, open, honest and respectful.
