Legacy Giving


Remembering NYJO in Your Will

Think of the joy that jazz has already given you over your lifetime. Celebrate your love of jazz by helping to ensure that future generations can share that joy. We understand that family and friends will always be your first priority, but you can also leave a gift in your will to NYJO and help secure the future of British Jazz for generations to come.


Reducing your inheritance tax bill

By leaving a gift in your will to NYJO you may also reduce your inheritance tax bill. Under tax rules as of December 2017, if you leave 10 per cent or more of your chargeable estate to a charity or combination of charities, the inheritance tax rate on the whole of your taxable estate is reduced from 40 to 36 per cent .


NYJO:  Securing the Future of British Jazz

Miles, Monk, Parker, Mingus, Coltrane – they all left great jazz legacies. Could you also leave a legacy to jazz?

The National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO) is the UK’s preeminent provider of jazz education. Its flagship jazz orchestra has been the country’s top young professional (under 26) jazz orchestra since our founding in 1965, performing around 40 concerts annually and acting as a gateway to the music profession.

We know that jazz, as a highly communicative and accessible art form, can transform lives. However jazz is underfunded, and our national jazz education infrastructure underdeveloped, compared to other music genres. So while our methods for developing and inspiring the next generation of jazz musicians are proven, our reach is currently limited by resources.

Income from NYJO’s public engagements and support from Arts Council England only funds half of what we currently do. That’s why we need your support.  Your gift will help us take the jazz message to an even wider audience, and level the playing field to ensure every young person can reach their potential through jazz.

NYJO is a charity, which means any gift will be deducted from your estate before inheritance tax. Thank you for helping us secure the future of British jazz.
