Legacy giving

‘Now in my 80s, I wish I could be more certain that, as I nod off, I will feel on the back of my neck the hot breath of likeminded successors. They will be intent on the same enjoyment and satisfaction that I have experienced’.
The Late Anthony Gilbert AO

Thanks to the foresight and generosity of the late Anthony Gilbert AO, Bell Shakespeare has become the accomplished Company that it is today, and his legacy still lives on.

If Bell Shakespeare has been an important part of your life, or you love the work we do, leaving a gift in your will can be part of your legacy too.

By leaving a bequest for Bell Shakespeare in your will, you create an enduring and deeply personal gift that helps make sure future generations are introduced to, and inspired by, the work we do.

We understand that the decision to include a gift in your will is a very personal one.  If you are considering leaving a legacy gift to Bell Shakespeare, please contact Debra Reinecke, Head of Development, or call 02 9289 9082 for a confidential conversation.

It is through such powerful and moving statements as legacy gifts that Bell Shakespeare is able to plan for a future that is confident and secure.

The Bell Shakespeare Legacy Circle has been formed to honour those who have included a gift to the Company in their will.

Creating work that resonates with all Australians has been at the heart of Bell Shakespeare’s mission since the beginning. We are deeply grateful to those visionary people who have remembered Bell Shakespeare in their will because they believe, as we do, that audiences across this country deserve to see themselves reflected in these great plays.
Peter Evans, Artistic Director

Alerting us in writing to a gift you have made in your will enables us to thank you appropriately by welcoming you to our Legacy Circle. As a member of this important group of supporters, you will be invited to unique, behind the scenes events and be part of the Bell Shakespeare family.

With your permission, we will ensure your generous and forward-thinking support of the Company is acknowledged on Bell Shakespeare’s website and in printed publications.
