We welcome gifts in Wills and gifts in memory to enable us to continue our mission


After your family and friends have been provided for, please consider leaving a gift to Southwark Cathedral. Even a small percentage of your estate can have a transformative impact.

It’s easy to make or alter a will, and most charity donations in the UK are free from inheritance tax (Southwark Cathedral is treated as an exempt charity by HMRC). All you need to do is:

  • Seek professional legal advice to assist you with writing your will. Further information about making a legacy can be found here
  • Alternatively, add a codicil to an existing will.  A codicil form can be downloaded here
  • And, if you so wish, you can help us by telling us about your intentions. A pledge form can be downloaded here

Gifts in Memory

Giving in memory can be a wonderful way to pay tribute to a loved one. You can remember their life by giving a financial gift to the Cathedral, with your donation going toward the things they enjoyed most; perhaps our choral music or the wonderful T.C. Lewis organ, or perhaps to support the building or the Cathedral more generally.

If you are a UK tax payer please consider completing and returning a Gift Aid Declaration. Please download a Gift Aid form here
