Leave a legacy

Leaving money in your will to VocalEyes

As a charity and not-for-profit organisation we are very grateful for all such bequests. No gift is too large or too small. With your bequest we will be better able to support and champion access to the arts and cultural heritage for blind and partially sighted people. There are many good reasons for giving:

Give to the future

You may like to make a financial contribution to help VocalEyes but are not currently able to do due to other financial commitments.

Leaving money in your will is a great way of leaving something for the long-term future of the service we provide, which we hope has given you much enjoyment.

Give to the right places

Gifts to registered charities such as VocalEyes are exempt from inheritance tax. Many people find it attractive to leave a specific amount to charity, thereby bringing down one’s total Inheritance Tax threshold.

Give what you can

Any gift is gratefully received – it doesn’t have to be a large amount to be useful and welcome. VocalEyes’ position and status means that you can be certain we will use your gift wisely and for the benefit of blind and partially sighted art lovers.

Why VocalEyes?

VocalEyes believes that blind and partially sighted people should have the best opportunities to experience and enjoy arts and cultural heritage. Founded in 1998, we now work with over 140 museums and theatres each year to make their performances, events, exhibitions and venues more accessible. We also campaign and lobby for better provision throughout the sector, and provide a free listing service for audio-described events across the UK.

VocalEyes does receive Arts Council England funding, but each year finds additional funding to keep our services affordable.

Next steps

While it is an easy thing to include the MA in your will, we want to ensure you have peace-of-mind about this. We strongly recommend you involve a solicitor or legal adviser when making or changing your will. Should you need to know a form of words to include we will be happy to supply this. You can contact us using details below.
