Leave a Legacy

By leaving a legacy to the Royal African Society, you can play a key role in helping to strengthen relationships and mutual understanding between the UK, Africa and the rest of the world.

We know that family and friends will be your first consideration in such an important decision, yet your gift to us could be as little as 1% of your estate. Your legacy would provide vital support to the Society, ensuring our mission-driven work will continue to make an impact for generations to come.

As a registered charity, making a gift in your will is tax efficient as this gift is exempt from Inheritance Tax. If you would like to make or amend your will, we recommend you see a solicitor. 

Thank you in advance for your support. If you would like to discuss your legacy with us, please email us on or write to Lizzie Orekoya, Administrative Manager, The Royal African Society, 36 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PD.
