Leave a Legacy

Page Navigation

Leaving a legacy to the Scottish Ballet Endowment Fund (SC049065) helps to build a resilient, dynamic future for the company. Your gift might also support meaningful initiatives such as commissioning new work or musical scores, supporting talented young dancers, or investing in our communities through transformational Engagement programmes.

Scottish Ballet currently performs to more than 10,000 people annually at venues across Scotland, the United Kingdom and internationally. Remembering Scottish Ballet in your Will provides essential long-term support to enable the company to reach out to and inspire more people, on stage, on screen and in our communities. We could reach even more with your support via a legacy.

Whether you have a Will or are yet to prepare one, it is easy to leave a legacy to the Scottish Ballet Endowment Fund. Even leaving 1% of your estate can make a huge difference. Find out how to include Scottish Ballet in your Will.

I may not be able to give as much as I would like now, but I can certainly leave Scottish Ballet a gift to continue their wonderful work when I am no longer here. You sow the seeds, you may not get to see the trees grow. But that’s okay, because we are doing it for future generations. It’s a gift I can give even when I’m gone.

The Darrell Bequest Circle

In honour of Peter Darrell and his visionary leadership as Scottish Ballet’s founding Artistic Director, and in recognition of the significant role legacies play securing our future, confirmed legatees are invited to join The Darrell Bequest Circle.

While many do not seek recognition, we encourage everyone who has included Scottish Ballet in their Will to notify us. Joining our ballet family in this way enables you to enjoy insights into the life of the company including special functions and behind-the-scenes events, publications and recognition in souvenir programs and annual reports (unless you wish to remain anonymous).
