Legacies

After your family and friends, please consider a gift to Chetham’s in your will.

You may not know that it is thanks to a generous legacy left by Humphrey Chetham that Chetham’s School of Music exists today. We will never know Humphrey Chetham’s thoughts as he wrote into his will a bequest to found a school for 40 poor boys. He certainly could not have foreseen the incredible impact he would have on thousands of students in the 350 years since, or have anticipated that the school he founded would become one of the most respected music schools in the world. But he did have that impact, and his legacy lives on.

As a registered charity, Chetham’s School of Music today relies on the support of donors like Humphrey Chetham to ensure that we remain a place of excellence for talented young musicians – regardless of their background.

Your legacy can provide vital support for Chetham’s, and we can help you tailor your support to reflect your own musical passions. If you are interested in helping us to continue our work through your own legacy, please get in touch with Tom Bevan for more information – 0161 838 7241, tombevan@chethams.com.
