Gift Heritage Items

You can leave a legacy of support for radio heritage. You can do this in several ways.

You can register certain items of radio memorabilia with us. Simply complete the registration form and make sure instructions are left with your personal papers and the items themselves. We send you confirmation that your items are registered with us. We send you handy stickers to help identify them.


Registration means that these items are gifted to us on your death. Alternatively, they can be delivered to us at any time of your personal choosing beforehand. If you wish, a public acknowledgement can be made of your gift.

You can include us in your Will. This allows you to precisely state your instructions and wishes so your trustees are better equipped to administer your estate the way you intended. It's also an opportunity to make a final charitable gift that leaves a legacy of support for radio heritage long after you've gone.

If you're about to make your Will or would like to add a 'codicil', and you'd like to include a gift for the Radio Heritage Foundation, simply download, print, and mail this form Link to MS Word document (20kb) to us.

Wills and codicils must be dated, signed and properly witnessed. If you wish, a public acknowledgement can be made of your bequest.

Please contact us to discuss how you can help the Radio Heritage Foundation through your Will. You can leave a bequest or gift to us no matter where in the world you live.

Radio Heritage Foundation projects and activities connect radio, popular culture, history and heritage.

The charitable trust has been giving a voice to those involved in radio via our website since 2004 and will continue to do so.

We are inclusive of all visitors, regardless of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, or disability and aim to connect people of all ages and cultures who love radio

We welcome a sense of wonder from the joy of listening via radio, and from memories retold for the enjoyment of all generations.

We prefer to use environmentally sustainable goods and services where we can afford to, and we provide free community access worldwide to our collections, published research, preservation and promotion activities in a completely paper-free environment.
