Leave a legacy

Your legacy will have a lasting impact, ensuring our future as a trusted forum for debate and dialogue.

Why leave a legacy to Chatham House?

Chatham House is a non-profit institute. We receive no government subsidies or significant endowments.

Remembering us in your will helps secure our future as a source of independent analysis, trusted dialogue and influential ideas – more important than ever in an age of misinformation.

How your gift will help

Your donation will support our work helping people, societies and governments understand and adapt to seismic change through:


Offering thought leadership, best practice and insight from world leaders, policy influencers and academics.


Publishing independent, influential policy recommendations on the challenges facing the world.


Informing public discourse by briefing governments, media and the general public.


Supporting emerging leaders with training and mentoring through our Academy for Leadership.

Our Margaret Cleeve giving circle recognizes those individuals who have pledged to leave a gift to the institute in their Will.

Your privacy

If you have decided to leave a gift to us in your will, we would welcome hearing from you so that we can thank you for your generosity.

We can guarantee your privacy and will not share your details with third parties.
