Every gift, in every will, no matter how large or small, helps to ensure that the SCO can continue to bring world-class music for generations to come and allows us to fund the events, projects and programming which our audiences have come to expect.
Recent gifts in wills have enabled SCO recordings and provided much-needed resources for our musicians and chorus, allowing others to enjoy the gift of music and we are most grateful that our supporters choose to remember us in this way.
After you have provided for family and friends, why not help continue our work for future generations and leave a percentage of your estate to the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
If you already have a will and you would like to include a gift to the SCO, you can make an addition, which is called a Codicil, and is straightforward and inexpensive to arrange through a solicitor. If you do not have a Will, you will need to seek professional advice from a solicitor or legal advisor.
In February 2013, the SCO took part in the 'Love the Arts, Leave to the Arts' Arts and Business legacy campaign, where arts lovers had the opportunity to get a basic will written, or amended, free of charge if they left a gift in their Will to an arts charity. To find out more the scheme or to register your interest in next year's campaign, please visit the 'Love the arts, Leave to the arts' website www.aandbscotland.org.uk/legacies/ or contact Adam James at the SCO.
If you would like to speak in confidence about your options with regards to leaving a gift to the SCO in your will, please contact Barry Ferguson or Adam James.

Please Note: While we make every attempt to ensure funds are placed towards specific programming as stipulated in the will, in the event that a specific programme no longer requires funding, we appreciate you providing leeway to the SCO Board in allocating the funds to the area which requires it most.
