Leave a Legacy Gift in your Will



A Legacy Message from NJA Patron – Sir Michael ParkinsonSir Michael Parkinson

“Leaving a Legacy Gift in your Will to the National Jazz Archive enables us make a difference for all future jazz lovers. Legacies left to the charity have allowed us to develop the Archive by adding new material and ensuring the collection is accessible to jazz lovers everywhere via our web site. Legacies will also help us to plan vital research far into the future. Legacy Gifts are essential to the long-term success of the Archive.” Download our legacy information pack.
