Radical Legacy

Support the People's History Museum with a Radical Legacy gift

People’s History Museum (PHM) welcome legacy giving for individuals who wish to support the museum by leaving a gift in their will.  Radical Legacy giving will support the museum to celebrate the stories of radical thinkers and enable the museum’s continued growth.

Radical Legacy gifts of any size are vital to the work of the museum.  Everyone who supports PHM is at a different stage of their life and able to give at a different level.  Whatever your specific situation may be, we can help you find a legacy giving option that suits your circumstances and makes a real difference to the museum’s work championing ideas worth fighting for.

A legacy gift can be a very practical addition to your financial or estate plan and a professional advisor can show you how giving may also benefit your family after you are gone.

Making a will is simple and best done through a qualified solicitor – you can discuss the following wording options with your own professional advisor or PHM may be able to arrange an appointment for you:

  • For a share: “I devise and bequeath [£X / X percentage] of the residue of my estate absolutely to People’s History Museum (registered charity no. 295260) of Left Bank, Spinningfields, Manchester M3 3ER [for its general charitable purposes] with the full power to expend capital as well as income for such purposes.  I further direct that the receipt of the Director or other proper officer of the said charity for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said gift to my executors and trustees.
  • For a specific sum of money: “I devise and bequeath the sum of £_____ to People’s History Museum (registered charity no. 295260) of Left Bank, Spinningfields, Manchester M3 3ER [for its general charitable purposes].  I further direct that the receipt of the Director or other proper officer of the said charity for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said gift to my executors and trustees.

 

If you would prefer to discuss your options in person, please contact the museum’s Head of Business Development, Sarah Miguel, who will be delighted to talk to you in confidence, on 0161 838 9190 or radicals@phm.org.uk.

If you let us know about a gift you’ve left in your will as a Radical Legacy, we would like to say thank you for the wonderful gesture.
