Remember us in your Will



Detail from Dutch cabinet on stand, marquetry of various woods, about 1670. 
Given to the Holburne by the late Miss Barbara Ellis

The Holburne was founded through a legacy and a gift to the Museum in your Will can help ensure that the Museum continues to be enjoyed well into the future.

If you are happy to inform us of your plans, we will be able to ensure your wishes are understood and we will be able to thank you during your lifetime for your support through membership of the Mary-Anne Holburne Group.

The Mary-Anne Holburne Group is named after Sir William’s youngest sister who made the bequest of his collection to create the Holburne. To thank you and keep you informed of our work members of the Group are invited to an annual lunch hosted by the Chairman of the Museum.

Gifts to the Holburne are acknowledged in the most appropriate manner, be it through our Thank You boards, in our Annual Review or on dedicated object labels. If you wish to be remembered in a specific way, and this is attached to your Gift, then it would be helpful to tell us about it first so that we can advise you.

If you would like to discuss leaving a Gift in your Will, or have already done so, please contact our Head of Development on 01225 388564. Any discussion will be treated in the strictest confidence and with the utmost sensitivity.
