A Legacy for Ditchley

"Ditchley is a magical setting where the fundamental problems which shape our time and our thinking can be debated freely and frankly, and ways forward identified. In the age of the sound-bite, we need Ditchley and places like it more than ever." 

The Rt Hon. Lord Robertson of Port Ellen (Former Chairman of Ditchley's Council of Management)


Owing to the original vision of Sir David Wills, and to the continuing generosity of the Wills family and our many other benefactors since then, Ditchley is able carry out business as usual.  However, to help realise Ditchley’s ambition and to ensure its future we are asking our like-minded supporters to consider remembering Ditchley in their will.

It is a gift which will cost the giver nothing in their lifetime, but such legacies, no matter the size, will be of enormous benefit to the continuation and impact of this remarkable and independent institution.

We would be very happy to acknowledge all gifts publicly and have various options for doing so which we would be pleased to discuss with you.  Alternatively, you may prefer your gift to remain anonymous.  In either case, we would ask that you let us and your loved ones know your wishes.


If you would like to discuss a Legacy Gift or request a Legacy Information Pack, please contact Louise Turner, Development Assistant.
