You don’t need to be wealthy to leave a legacy. A gift in your Will, however large or small, will help to preserve RAMM and its collections and make a positive difference to future generations of visitors and many local people who take part in our learning activities and public events every year.
A legacy left to the RAMM Development Trust, the supportive charitable arm of the museum, could support RAMM in many ways, from maintaining the high standard of the collections to conservation and the long-term care of stored items, continually improving storage conditions to make the collections more easily accessible to visitors. Your help could also transform the lives of people dealing with challenging problems.
Through education and learning programmes, RAMM works with a range of partners to improve people’s wellbeing, with activities including curatorial conversations and cake for lonely older people, dementia-friendly art tours for people with dementia, craft time for young families, and animation workshops for older children.
Types of legacy
There are three main types of legacy:
A gift of the remainder or a percentage of your estate after all debts, taxes, expenses and other bequests have been made.
A fixed sum donation decided by you.
You may wish to leave RAMM a particular, named item as a gift in your Will, for example a work of art, property or stocks and shares. If you are considering leaving a specific item to RAMM, please discuss your plans with us before you commit them to your Will, as this will help us plan the growth of our collections.
We are currently recruiting a Development Officer, but in the meantime you can contact us by emailing RDT@exeter.gov.uk or by phoning Claire Bailey on 01392 265311.
