Have you considered leaving a gift in your will to support the Arts Scholars of the future? Legacies can be left to support the wonderful work that our Charitable Trust carries out. 

The Company of Arts Scholars Charitable Trust is a registered charity ( Registered Charity Number: 1121954 ) and legacies for the Charitable Trust attract certain tax benefits. If you are generous enough to consider leaving a percentage of your estate there are even more tax advantages if the percentage is 10 % of your estate or more.


If you would like further information on the work of the Charitable Trust please contact Tom Christopherson at

Alternatively, you may consider leaving a gift to the Worshipful Company of Arts Scholars. Although this would not attract the same tax benefits to your estate as gifts to the Charitable Trust, it would be extremely welcome in supporting the core activities and future of our Company. 

In particular, you might consider making a gift to the “Company Venues Fund” which, with the prospect of rising costs for the Company and its members, has been set up to support the growing expense involved in hiring halls and other venues for the Company’s activities in the City of London. 

It is intended that this fund should be built up for the benefit of both current and future members of the Arts Scholars.

If you would like more information about the Company Venues Fund please contact Graham Barker at

We cannot give legal advice but would encourage you to consult your solicitor.

Any gift you leave to the Arts Scholars in your will be greatly appreciated and, if you so wish, will be fully acknowledged.
