A Gift in Your Will

Supporting Dorset Archives Trust in your will

Dorset’s archives reach back over 1000 years.  Leaving a legacy to Dorset Archives Trust in your will is one of the most enduring and valuable ways you can help us to preserve Dorset’s written and recorded heritage.  Even a small consideration in your will can make a huge difference.  Your gift could:

  • purchase documents and save them for the public collection
  • conserve fragile items so that they can be viewed and used again
  • encourage access to heritage by children and young people
  • fund the long-term preservation of collections which are at risk of destruction or decay.

The charity will use the 100% of the sum bequeathed to support the work of Dorset History Centre – the two organisations work in close partnership.

Your legacy will make a real difference.  If you would like to consider making a bequest, please use the form here which can be incorporated into your will.  If you have any questions, or would like to know more about the work of Dorset Archives Trust, please contact us at: enquiries@dorsetarchivestrust.org
