Leaving a Legacy
""Leaving a legacy to RADA is a wonderfully tangible way of helping theatre and film in the UK - every penny will go towards assisting the next generation of actors as well as nourishing the arts for the next generation and beyond".
Michael Simkins - RADA Alumnus and Legacy Supporter.
Legacy donations have always been a vital source of support for RADA, helping us to sustain excellence and diversity in everything we do. The actor Michael Simkins, who graduated from RADA in 1978 and has starred in the West End musicals Chicago and Mamma Mia!, has pledged money to the Academy in his Will:"It seems quite incredible now. There is no way I could have gone to RADA without financial support - it changed my life. My legacy will allow me to leave a part of myself in a place that has felt very special to me. We have a wonderful tradition of acting in this country and I feel proud to think that I'm not just a part of that in the present - I will also be a part of its future.”
By remembering RADA in your Will you can make a lasting gift that ensures the continuity of world-class training at the Academy, helping shape tomorrow’s foremost talent in the world of film, theatre, television and radio.
Your legacy can underpin a specific area of training, assist students in need or provide general funds to enhance RADA’s charitable objectives. Please take a read of our different fund areas to learn about the variety of work that you could be supporting. Whatever means the most to you, let us know and we will ensure that your generosity is allocated and celebrated appropriately.
We are infinitely grateful to our legacy donors for remembering us in their Wills.
""The arts are surely the highest form of human expression, which enrich all our lives, so creative artists need to be encouraged down through the ages. We would like to know that when we are gone, student bursaries… will ensure that future acting talent continues to be nurtured at RADA. There could be no better legacy to one's life."
