Leave a gift in your will

Help us cultivate a thriving craft sector in which talented individuals from any background can develop their skill and build a thriving, commercially successful business.

As an award-winning social enterprise, Cockpit raises essential funds through charitable donations from individuals, trusts and foundations and corporate partners. Contributions from Legacies are essential to enabling us to achieve our mission.

Leaving a gift in your will is a personal and important decision, reflecting your life experience and your values. Any gift, large or small, makes a tangible difference to Cockpit’s work. It is also a gesture of kindness and generosity to future generations of makers and those who help them thrive.

We are very grateful to you as you consider leaving us a gift in your will.

How to leave a gift in your will

Your legacy could help us pursue our mission – our core work of supporting maker businesses to start up and grow; our youth, careers, community and education activities; and our new public events programme – to cultivate a thriving, equitable craft sector.

When you consider leaving a gift in your will, we suggest you follow a few easy steps:

  1. Seek professional advice from a solicitor and a financial advisor
  2. Include our full legal name Cockpit Arts and registered charity number 1029643
  3. Tell your loved ones that we are named in your will to avoid surprises

‘I’ve seen the impact Cockpit has and really value their work. After I die, I want to continue to support their efforts, ensuring an enduring impact for craft.’

Sarah Samuel, Cockpit Trustee & Legacy Donor
