Support us Leave a Legacy Leave a Legacy The value of a legacy to the Royal Commonwealth Society Leaving a legacy is an impactful way to help ensure the valuable work of the Royal Commonwealth Society continues well into the future. Legacies provide a vital source of income, allowing us to plan and expand our work to achieve our mission. Remembering us in your will is a way of ensuring that we can continue to improve the lives and prospects of all Commonwealth citizens across the world through youth empowerment, education and high-level advocacy, whilst we continue to champion literacy, equality and inclusion, the environment and connected communities across the Commonwealth’s 54 nations. Including a legacy to the Royal Commonwealth Society in your will is straightforward. You can make a gift of a specific sum of money or a proportion of your residual estate. If you have already made a will, you can add a codicil which we are happy to supply. Leaving a legacy to a charity might also reduce inheritance tax.
