Gifts in Wills


We believe that art transforms people’s lives.

Every day, hundreds of people walk through the gallery doors to be greeted with some of the most inspiring artworks in the world. Contemporary art is about contemporary life and has the power to connect and engage in a personal and direct way, opening minds and finding new possibilities. 

Gifts in Wills are an important and crucial source of funding, providing lasting support which will help to safeguard BALTIC’s ability to enrich more people’s lives now and in the future. 

Remember BALTIC in your will

There are many ways you can make a gift which is both simple and efficient: 

  • Residuary: the amount left over after all other costs, for example, funeral expenses, have been deducted 

  • Pecuniary: a fixed sum of money

  • Specific: a gift of a particular named item, for example, a painting, building or land

  • Reversionary: a gift to a loved one for use during his or her lifetime which can then be passed onto a specified charity after this time

Leaving a gift in your will is an effective lasting contribution without any immediate outlay. Legacies left to charities are free from inheritance tax, which means a legacy could result in your tax bill being reduced.

If you have already made a will, you can add an amendment, known as a codicil, which BALTIC can provide for you. We do recommend that you consult with your legal advisor when deciding upon making a legacy.

By making a gift to BALTIC, you are recognising the work that we do and the difference we make to people’s lives. No gift is too large or too small. Whatever the size, your gift can and will make a difference.

If you would like to pledge a gift to BALTIC, please fill in the Pledge Form and send it to the address below.

Leaving a gift in your will is an important decision to make.

If you would like to find out more, or have an informal chat please contact Rachael Watson, Development Manager, direct on 0191 4404927 or email

Your gift will be treated with confidentiality and with sensitivity.

We hope to hear from you soon.
