It’s with your support that we can continue to provide this valuable service; collecting, safeguarding and ensuring the records continue to be made available for future generations.

We greatly appreciate any gift to the archive. In receiving a legacy, this is our commitment to you.

We promise:

  •     Your will is personal to you and we will always respect your privacy
  •     We will use your gift carefully to ensure it provides impact to the work we do
  •     At anytime in the future you have the right to change your mind
  •     We will handle any gift with sensitivity and respect
  •     If you want to, you can tell us that you have left a gift in your will but we will not ask

Any gift in your will is private and we would never directly ask you to share your intentions. However, so we can plan for our future, it would be helpful if you could tell us whether you are thinking about leaving a gift to us in your will. This also gives us the chance  to thank you and invite you to see how your gift could be used to support our work.
