Leave a Legacy

The Foundling Museum is built on the legacy which Thomas Coram, William Hogarth and George Frederic Handel left to the nation in creating the Foundling Hospital. Indeed Handel himself was a pioneer of legacy giving, bequeathing a score and parts of Messiah to the Hospital in his Will, and more recently Gerald Coke gifted his collection of Handel memorabilia to the Museum as part of his settlement.

If you too are passionate about the continuing work of the Foundling Museum, perhaps you would consider leaving a legacy in your Will to the Museum. Leaving a legacy need not be difficult, expensive nor time consuming, and there are many different ways in which to do it.  Your generous donation will help the Museum plan and secure its future by contributing to the Museum’s Endowment Fund. The Foundling Museum is a registered charity which does not receive Government funding.
