Remembering BCMG in your will is a special way to help music flourish in the future. Leaving a legacy won’t cost you anything right now but will give future generations the chance to create and enjoy the best contemporary music of their time.

Any size gift will make a valuable contribution to our work, from helping to subsidise a local school’s participation in our workshops, to commissioning a new piece from one of contemporary music’s finest composers.

Most people choose to leave either: 

A pecuniary legacy, which is a specific amount of money or item 


A residuary legacy, which is the remainder or a percentage of the remainder of your estate once family and friends have been taken care of.

If you have already made a will…

And would like to leave a gift to BCMG, you can do so by making a simple addition to your existing will. This is called a codicil. This document is a supplement to your will enabling you to include new instructions and delete old ones without having to go through the task of rewriting the whole will.

If you have not already made a will…

We advise that you visit a solicitor to seek advice about how to make one. Solicitors will charge a fee, but you will receive sound professional advice and can be sure that your wishes are accurately reflected.

We would be grateful if you would let us know if you have left us a gift, as we would like to show our gratitude now.

For more information on remembering BCMG in your will, or if you wish to let us know that you have already left a gift, please contact Head of Development, Nicole Hermanns, by phoning 0121 616 2621 or email [email protected].
